Secrets of the sandstone: the Arnhem Land sandstone heath

1.00pm - 4.30pm

The Arnhem Land Plateau is a vast and rugged landscape that supports the only federally listed Threatened Ecological Community recognised in the Northern Territory: the ponderously named ‘Arnhem Plateau Sandstone Shrubland Complex Ecological Community’. We want to make a strong sandstone knowledge network so that old knowledge for this area is not lost. If we have a good knowledge network, rangers can more easily access the information they need to know, so they can look after country how the old people would like it looked after.

This workshop is to help rangers and other land managers understand how the stone country was looked after in the old days.

Freshwater turtles on country: Importance and Threats
By invitation only

8.30am - 4.30pm

Indigenous Ranger Groups that have identified freshwater turtles as culturally significant in their Healthy Country Plans.

Desired outcome:  All Australian freshwater turtle species are currently being assessed against Environmental Protection Biodiversity Conservation Act criteria for threatened listing status. This workshop aims to incorporate traditional Indigenous knowledge in the listing assessment process, particularly for Culturally Significant Species. This information will contribute to the Species Expert Assessment Plans (SEAPs) Project.

Fisheries science and knowledge to meet the challenges of a changing Northern Territory
By invitation only

8.30am - 4.30pm

This symposium will focus on emerging opportunities and challenges facing fisheries management in the Northern Territory. Themes will include topical research and perspectives on issues such as responding to climate change and water resource development for sustainable fisheries and coastal livelihoods, supporting community and Indigenous fisheries livelihoods and management, collaborative management/co-management of fisheries, and embracing new tools and technology to inform threatened species management and fisheries policy. This symposium will provide an opportunity to bring together research scientists, fishery managers and policy makers, Traditional Owners, Land and Sea Rangers, Land Councils, fishing industry bodies from all sectors (commercial, recreational, Indigenous, aquaculture), and other interested parties. Presentation sessions centred around themes will be followed by a research needs and priority setting workshop. A final plenary session will report back to the symposium on opportunities for future fishery science directions to guide collaborative engagement and research to meet the challenges of a changing Northern Territory.
