Roles, challenges and opportunities in Indigenous Land Management

Dr Tristan Pearce and Ms Rachele Wilson in partnership with the Bunya Bunya Country Aboriginal Corporation (BBCAC) examine the roles, challenges and opportunities for Indigenous land management in urban and peri-urban landscapes.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have been 'caring for country' for thousands of years and continue to do so through Indigenous land and sea management (ILM).

Most research on ILM in Australia has focused on Traditional Owners working in remote locations that are predominantly rural and where Native Title has been determined or where inalienable freehold titles have been recognized.

Less is known about Aboriginal land managers operating in peri-urban landscapes such as those on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland.

This multi-year research program examines roles, challenges and opportunities for ILM in peri-urban landscapes on the Sunshine Coast.

This is a long-term partnership between USC researchers and members of Bunya Bunya Country Aboriginal Corporation (BBCAC).
