Strategic Planning

Strategic Planning

In 2013-2014, Yirrganydji People undertook strategic planning for their sea country between Cairns and Port Douglas, North Queensland. Yirrganydji People engaged with the Dawul Wuru Aboriginal Corporation to develop a Yirrganydji Sea Country Plan, so that government agencies, researchers, industry, and the wider community can better understand what sea country means to Yirrganydji People, the concerns they have and how their country should be managed.

The Yirrganydji Sea Country Plan aims to compliment the existing Yirrganydji Traditional Use of Marine Resources Agreement (TUMRA) program and focus on a broader management scope of sea country between Cairns and Port Douglas, North Queensland. 

This project was supported through funding provided by the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection (Qld).

In the near future, the Yirrganydji people wish to conduct some further strategic planning for their traditional country between Cairns and Port Douglas, North Queensland.
