Congratulations to our colleagues in SCRIPT and the South West Catchments Council who have been successful in their application to the Australian Government for $911,000 over three years to support a joint project ‘Restoring connections between people and land in south western Australia’. This project will fund work by the Noongar community to establish a number of sites, in both the South Coast and South West regions, where ecological and cultural significance is jointly restored and celebrated, and grew out of an ongoing discussion between the regions, Noongar representatives and Gondwana Link Co-ordination Unit. We are proud to have helped colleagues Kelly Flugge, Paula Deegan, Bill Bennell and Paul Bowers bring this package of funded action together.
