REGIONAL DROUGHT RESILIENCE ON NOONGAR BOODJA

Kaya,

South Coast NRM has teamed up with the great people at Keogh Bay and Gillamii, to ensure that the Indigenous community have the opportunity to contribute to the Regional Drought Resilience Plan for the Great Southern region.

The Regional Drought Resilience Plan, being developed by the Great Southern Development Commission, will help to prepare communities for drought and a drying climate.

If you are concerned about the effects of a drying climate or drought on Noongar boodja our team would like to speak with you!

We would like to learn how you see drought affecting Country, your family and the community. We would also like to get your ideas about what we can do in the future to deal with these problems.

Our consultation team – Kingsley Bartlett – a Noongar man with Baladong, Yued and Minang links – Freya Spencer and Ashley Marjoram from The Gillamii Centre in Cranbrook – hope to meet with you in the week beginning May 23rd May 2022.

If you would like to have your say in this important project or if you have any questions, contact

Kingsley at kbartlett@keoghbay.com.au, 0487 394 256 or

Matt Wrigley at matt.wrigley@keoghbay.com.au, 0419 763 101.

We look forward to hearing from you, Boorda waangk – speak soon!
