    Hi Kyle,

    It’s great that you’re trying to embed the Traditional Knowledge in your design. We can reach out to DWAC and see if they have any information that might influence your design. This activity may take about a week or more.

    Have you browsed the Yirrganydyi Traditional Use of Marine Resource Agreement (TUMRA) and the Yirrganydyi Sea Country Plan in the Resources section? You can quote interesting sections in your report to strengthen your research.

    The TUMRA outlines how Yirrganydji Traditional Owners will protect cultural and heritage values, conserve biodiversity and enhance the resilience of the Great Barrier Reef while also highlighting the importance of supporting and recognising the leadership, responsibilities and management roles of Traditional Owners over their lands and waters.

    The Sea Country plan was developed so that people could better understand what it means to the Yirrganydji people, their concerns about their Country, and how they need to be addressed.

    We’ll update this post as soon as we get more information from Dawul Wuru.
