Indigenous ecological knowledge and participation is fundamental to the sustainable management of Australia’s marine and coastal environment. The Marine and Coastal Hub is committed to including opportunities for the participation of Traditional Owners within projects where achievable, and this participation is expanding as new projects are established. The hub’s Indigenous partnerships strategy outlines our approach to two-way engagement relationships that recognise, respect and incorporate the interests, rights and Indigenous ecological knowledge of Traditional Owners. Research in this area strives to build knowledge, skills and experience that will give individuals, communities, and industries a greater capacity to manage and benefit from Country, from the seagrasses of Tasmania to the wetlands of Kakadu.
