Sustaining Eden: Indigenous community wildlife management in Australia
This report focuses on Australian indigenous peoples’ use and management of terrestrial vertebrates and some marine species (dugongs and turtles). In doing so it examines the extent to which the contemporary involvement of indigenous people management of these species and their habitats is an effective example of CWM,
which provides for sustainable use of wildlife and returns benefit to indigenous communities. It explores key issues and policy considerations for the future of indigenous CWM in Australia.
