“Securing values and beliefs of Australian First Nation’s peoples is crucial for the functioning of knowing and being of place, people and spirit – recognised within, and part of, extremely complex, dynamic, natural and cultural landscapes.”

This website aims to draw attention to the wealth of projects, research and management plans where Indigenous Biocultural Knowledge has been used and Aboriginal people have added great value to our understanding of Australian ecology and land management practices.
Many Aboriginal people and their non-Indigenous colleagues have and are working on a range of projects to manage and understand Country using Indigenous Biocultural knowledge and western science. This website offers an indicative map of where these projects have been documented and provides examples of current leading practice, review material, related resources and case studies of “living” knowledge and projects that have not been documented.
