With the assistance of our Traditional Owners and Rangers, we mapped and recorded information about significant parts of our country. This information now guides our natural and cultural heritage management.
The project involved:
  • Mapping 65 culturally significant places (four of which are featured below)
  • Recording the values and management priorities attached to these places
  • Recording how these places should be looked after 
  • Identifying and ranking the threats to these places 
  • Identifying places that are high management priority 
  • Using this information to develop management plans and priorities for each of these areas and places

The integration of this cultural/traditional knowledge into our work plans helps to prioritise how we manage our vast country, enabling us to concentrate our limited resources more efficiently to achieve cultural and environmental benefits. The maps created by the project and the information it has recorded can also be used to facilitate inter-generational and cross-cultural understanding of country.
