Wheatbelt NRM's Projects pages
This website is an interactive tool designed for the Wheatbelt Aboriginal community to showcase all of the projects they have developed and implemented on country, from fire management to biodiversity and sustainable agriculture projects. The community are driving the development of the website and we see the community using it to help develop their own projects on country.
The website is designed to give Wheatbelt Natural Resource Management a new way of sharing projects with the community. Local schools and training organisations will be able to use the website as a learning tool for students. We also see this project being used by Aboriginal Natural Resource Management organisations that evolve as the Noongar people gain greater access to country in the future. The Noongar people, as Traditional Owners of the Wheatbelt region, have a great responsibility to look after country and we foresee the website enhancing the opportunities for Noongar people to access and work on country.
The project also aims to bring together the Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal community to manage many projects, including sites of cultural significance, on private property within the Wheatbelt. The website will aim to show how the two groups can work together and reduce the perceived threat of country being taken away from non-Aboriginal Landholders.
