The Story of Australia’s Indigenous Protected Areas.
IN 75 INDIGENOUS Protected Areas across the nation, traditional owners are managing their land for a better future. Protected areas are defined areas of land or sea, dedicated and managed in order to preserve the long-term sustainability and conservation of the region, including the associated ecosystems and cultural values. In Australia, this includes lands such as national parks, state reserves, protected private land and Indigenous Protected Areas. Learn about the IPA program, investigating different ways the land is being managed and how culture is being preserved around Australia.
