The Wet Tropics Management Authority’s Board of Directors gathered for a board meeting on 4–5 March, taking the time in a busy agenda to undertake a field trip with Mandingalbay Ancient Indigenous Tours and Gunggandji-Mandingalbay Yidinji Peoples.
A visit to the Mayi Bugan Trail at Grey Peaks National Park and meetings with both groups to discuss their future plans and aspirations in the World Heritage Area were two of the day’s highlights.
Thanks to Mandingalbay Yidinji and Gunggandji-Mandingalbay Yidinji Peoples for having us on country. The Wet Tropics World Heritage Area is a living cultural landscape, and it is important that traditional knowledge and expertise of Rainforest Aboriginal People are interconnected with contemporary natural resource management.
More information on the board meeting and field trip are available in Board Communique no. 107 (PDF, 534KB).
