Moresby Hosts MARP Regional Meeting

Recently our Aboriginal Custodianship team had their latest Midwest Aboriginal Ranger Program Meeting, hosted by the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation, and Attractions (DBCA) at the Moresby Range Conservation Park!

Alanna Chant led a session on flora identification, showing our teams how to identify, classify and categorise different plants.

We were joined by Traditional Owners, our Ranger teams (Western Mulga, Kwelena Mambakort Aboriginal Corporation and our DBCA Rangers from both Geraldton and Jurien Bay).

An important part of our day was receiving knowledge on bush medicine and food from Nanda and Southern Yamatji Traditional Owners explaining that one of the plants aren’t usually found in this region and would be much more common in desert regions in Western Australia.

We were also taken on a tour of the of the area with the DBCA crew showcasing area where they had been doing revegetation and to other areas for more flora identification.
