Restoring Noongar Boodja are three integrated and time critical projects being managed by South Coast NRM in partnership with The The University of Western Australia & UWA Albany Campus, Wirlomin Noongar Language & Stories and Albany Heritage Reference Group Aboriginal Corporation (AHRGAC). Supported by Lotterywest, Restoring Noongar Boodja is aimed at respecting, recording, applying and sharing Noongar knowledge to manage our natural resources.
One of these three integrated projects is Walking Together which is a collaboration with Noongar groups and families and the UWA Albany Campus. This project combines traditional ecological knowledge and western science to establish protocols and contemporary management techniques for the care of our natural assets.
In this YouTube, Meerningar Elder Lynette Knapp teaches us about her obligation to pass on cultural fire practice to look after her country – Meerningar/Goreng Boodjar.
