The ongoing restoration work at Nowanup, in the Fitz-Stirling section of Gondwana Link, has been highlighted in a short article published on-line today by the journal Ecological Management and Restoration. The map shows the ‘Karta-Wongkin-Jini’ (place where people come together) area, planted last year. It was designed and implemented by Noongar leader Eugene Eades and restoration ecologist Justin Jonson. The design represents Noongar communities across the region. ‘The planting is only a year old, but the integration of cultural values and the sites biophysical conditions into one inclusive design is a powerful and innovative step forward.”
