North Australian Indigenous Land and Sea Management Alliance
The Australian Government’s Performance Story evaluation of the NAILSMA Dugong and Marine Turtle Project (DMTP) concluded the project was a “standout success” that had “outstripped the original expectations”. The project has created innovative communication and management tools and established on-ground monitoring and research activities that address many dugong and marine turtle management issues including sustainable catch management. The networks established by the project bring together Indigenous and non-Indigenous people in effective partnerships across the range of these iconic migratory species.
