Aboriginal Participation

Welcome to the country of the Yamaji and Noongar peoples.

For thousands of years the Yamatji and Noongar Aboriginal peoples have been gathering knowledge of the environment across the Northern Agricultural Region (NAR).

Their traditional ecological knowledge is proving extremely valuable in enhancing the ways we care for our environment.

The NACC team recognises the unique understandings and management skills Aboriginal peoples have in supporting our natural resources.

NACC is working alongside traditional landowners to encourage the reinvigoration and use of traditional knowledge to improve conservation outcomes and protect cultural heritage.

By involving Aboriginal people in Natural Resource Management (NRM), NACC is improving the biodiversity of NAR ecosystems, and also strengthening social and economic outcomes across the region.

Through infusing traditional ecology and modern scientific knowledge NACC is working towards taking the best steps forward in supporting our environment and traditional owners.
