Andrew supports Indigenous ranger programs and Indigenous Protected Areas (IPA), for instance because Indigenous people should have the right to care for their land with which they are culturally and spiritually connected. He also believes that sustainable land management, particularly in the areas of fire prevention, weed, feral animal management and protection of threatened species are essential.

Andrew supports the proposal of Country Needs People, including increasing the number of Indigenous rangers, increasing and expanding funding to the IPA program and ensuring equal opportunities for women. Any viable work in and around Indigenous communities can only be a good thing which is why it is important that these programs are well funded and are expanded so that they are available to Indigenous communities equally across the country.
