The 2018 calendar features recipients of the Rainforest Aboriginal Grants Program as well as collaborative Rainforest Aboriginal led projects supported by Terrain NRM and the Wet Tropics Management Authority.
The Rainforest Aboriginal Grants provide funding to Rainforest Aboriginal people and their organisations to undertake projects which improve cultural recognition, cultural management and on-ground partnerships in World Heritage management. The grants also support leadership, mentoring, and country-based planning. Rainforest Aboriginal people and local Indigenous ranger groups are also working on country with the Authority to eradicate yellow crazy ants from the Wet Tropics.
The 2018 calendar is a collaborative initiative of Rainforest Aboriginal people and their organisations, the Authority and Terrain NRM. We acknowledge the contributions of the Jirrbal, Tablelands Yidinji, Gunggandji, Yirrganydji, Girringun, Gunggandji-Mandingalbay Yidinji, Eastern Kuku Yalanji, Djabugay, Gimuy Walubara Yidinji peoples and their organisations.
The Authority and Terrain NRM are committed to continuously improving our engagement with Rainforest Aboriginal people and the wider community—we would love to hear from you.
