Kaanju Homelands Wenlock & Pascoe Rivers Indigenous Protected Area Management Plan
Primarily, this Plan is for Kaanju people living on homelands, but it also serves as a guide for external land and resource management, conservation, service delivery, economic development and community development organisations and agencies, both government and non-government, engaged with Chuulangun Aboriginal Corporation and Kaanju people on issues concerning our traditional homelands and associated resources.
The preparation of this Plan is also a requirement of Chuulangun Aboriginal Corporation‘s Project Agreement with the IPA Program of the Commonwealth Department of Environment and Heritage (DEH) and investigates the establishment of an IPA over parts of our homelands on the Wenlock and Pascoe Rivers.
Our thanks go first to Kaanju Traditional Owners associated with homelands on the Wenlock and Pascoe Rivers - this plan reflects on-ground Indigenous aspirations for land and resource management. We also thank our colleague, ethno-botanist Nick Smith, for preparing sections on flora and weeds, contributing a number of photographs, commenting on drafts, as well as ongoing support for our aspirations as Kaanju Traditional Owners.
We would like to acknowledge the assistance and support of staff from the Indigenous Protected Areas Program at the Commonwealth Department of Environment and Heritage. This Management Plan has been prepared with the assistance of grant funding under the IPA program and the Australian Government's Natural Heritage Trust.
