Cultural heritage and biodiversity

 

Cultural connection to land and biodiversity is likely to be impacted by climate change impacts. Shifts in seasonal rainfall and temperature patterns can disrupt long standing cultural indicators, disturbing significant cultural connections with the land.

This case study investigated the impacts of climate change on the Minyumai Indigenous Protected Area, a 20,000 ha wildlife corridor on the NSW North Coast. It utilised local knowledge of Traditional Owners and rangers to identify changes to the seasonality of culturally significant plants and animals.

These resources will enable Indigenous communities, such as the Bandjaling Traditional Owners and rangers to enhance future land management and provide educational tools for schools.
