Through the Dawul Wuru Aboriginal Corporation, Yirrganydji Traditional owners have undertaken a range of strategic planning activities to help guide and inform government, scientific community, industry, decision makers, and users of their traditional lands and waters of the Cairns and Port Douglas region. The plans have provided an insight into what land and sea country means to Yirrganydji People, the concerns they have, and how their country should be managed for the current and future.
Some of the plans that have been developed includes:
- Dawul Wuru Aboriginal Corporation Strategic Plan;
- Yirrganydji Land and Sea Ranger Operations Plan;
- Yirrganydji Sea Country Plan;
- Yirrganydji Traditional Use of Marine Resources Agreement (TUMRA) Implementation Plan;
- Yirrganydji Cultural Landscape Management Plan;
- Yirrganydji Cultural Landscape Fire Management Plan; and
- Yirrganydji Cultural Landscape Water Management Plan.
The Yirrganydji people wish to continue building on their existing plans to help assist in effective, efficient, and culturally appropriate management of their traditional lands and waters on the coast between Cairns and Port Douglas in North Queensland, Australia.
