Thursday 2 July from 7:30pm to 8:30pm

During NAIDOC 2020, the Australian National Maritime Museum celebrates the connection between Traditional Owners and Sea Country drawing on this year’s theme 'Always Was, Always Will Be'.

This talk will explore the benefits of engaging with the more than 70 Traditional Owner groups who hold knowledge over the vast Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority management area. The deep knowledge of sea country that Traditional Owners bring is vital to understanding, managing and protecting the future of the reef. 

Traditional Owners and The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority (GBRMPA) work together to protect cultural and heritage values, conserve biodiversity and enhance the resilience of the Great Barrier Reef. Traditional Owners hold cultural authority over Sea Country as legally defined within federal law and Traditional Use of Marine Resources Agreements (TUMRA).

The Capacity Building of Indigenous Ranger Strategy is a nationally-accredited training course delivered by the Authority. It provides Indigenous rangers with the skills to ensure Marine Park users comply with the rules, while also providing opportunity to promote traditional lore systems and protect traditional estates within the iconic Great Barrier Reef Marine Park.

Rangers share valuable local knowledge and cultural insights to enhance government compliance, management and education programs for the future of the Reef.
