'Saltwater people managing gungu in their sea country' is a highly collaborative project aimed at creating a comprehensive turtle management partnership. Partners include WWF-Australia, James Cook University the Gudjuda Reference Group, the Girringun Aboriginal Corporation, the Queensland State Government, as well as key community groups and other government and non-government organisations. In the first stages, the aim is to increase knowledge around the health of turtle populations in Gudjuda and Girringun sea country - specifically those factors contributing to the fibropapilloma disease affecting turtles in the area. The partnership involves research, monitoring and education – and working towards a sustainable future for turtles and communities alike.



The Banksia People's Choice Award is made possible through the support of Australia Post
