Keeping Place Project The Keeping Place project was initiated by Meaghan Cummins to address risks around the security of Woppaburra sea country heritage at the KIEEC. In addition, this project aimed to establish an inventory of the collection and determine recommendations for improvement.
The five-day workshop was coordinated and facilitated by the Reef Authority, which brought together 20 Traditional Owners from across 11 TUMRA groups involved in implementing or developing TUMRAs. All participants engaged and actively participated in a culturally safe manner, sharing their knowledge and experiences in sea country management.
WTAC was pleased to secure additional funding from our valued partners Queensland Parks and Wildlife through their Reef Joint Management Program and the Fitzroy Basin Association to support Padi Dive training for interested Woppaburra people.
