This project had two objectives:
The first, to aid in the establishment of a bush-tucker nursery by providing a secure water source, and secondly to record cultural knowledge and share knowledge between Elders and Rangers. The project provided part of the funds necessary for the purchase and transport of a water storage tank to secure water to the Kuku Ya’u bush tucker nursery.
This project extended the coverage of traditional fire management practices across Cape York Peninsula, both during this activity and beyond the project timeframe. The project contributed to the Caring for Our Country target ' to expand traditional fire management regimes across at least 200 00 sq km's of northern Australian savannas by 2013.
