By developing and implementing focus Management Plans for Ngadju country, we will work with our business partners to ensure culturally sensitive areas remain protected and accessible for our current and future generations. All new land use or development will be managed in accordance with our cultural heritage protocols. The Ngadju Indigenous Protected Area was dedicated over Ngadju Country in 2020 and it will massively help the conservation of 4.4 of the Western Woodland's 16 million hectares.
Why has an IPA been granted? Because the Great Western Woodlands is the largest intact temperate woodland left on Earth, a refuge for endangered birds and mammals and is home to 30 per cent of Australia's eucalyptus.
It's one of two sites in Western Australia declared Indigenous Protected Areas (IPA) under agreements with the Federal Government. The woodlands around Norseman in WA's Goldfields have been dedicated to the National Reserve System under the Federal Government's new IPA program.
We want our children to be proud and respected Aboriginal Australians, carrying our culture into the future and developing into leaders to strengthen, inspire and guide future generations.
We are focused on increasing our abilities, our offerings, and our outputs to narrow the gap in social, emotional, financial and cultural wellbeing for Ngadju people.
