Indigenous wildlife management – scientific research support

In an opinion piece in the Journal Wildlife Research published in May 2010 AWS outlines how science could play a greater role in ensuring that Indigenous wildlife harvesting is sustainable. The paper discusses the role of Indigenous wildlife use in helping to address community health and employment challenges facing Indigenous Australians in remote and rural areas.
An abstract is available on the CSIRO website at   The full paper is available from our downloads – Indigenous wildlife management in Australia to enable sustainable use (13517 downloads)

We are anticipate that the paper will lead to positive outcomes for Indigenous wildlife managers and a re-distribution of investments to what we hear Indigenous people saying is a high priority.
