EarthCollective members Bas Verschuuren (Editor in Chief, Sacred Nature Sites Initiative) and Matthew Zylstra (Founding Coordinator, eyes4earth) led co-authorship of an article recently published in PARKS: The International Journal of Protected Areas and Conservation (Issue 21.1).
The article, Mixing Waters represents both the primary scientific output and a culmination of field research the team carried out in collaboration with Dhimurru Aboriginal Corporation between 2007 – 2011 in developing locally relevant recreational fishing and boating guidelines.
The authors remain grateful to both the Yolŋu people and Dhimurru Aboriginal Corporation for welcoming them onto country and providing much support toward the realisation of both this research article and the Guidelines for Fishers and Boaters. Thanks also to NAILSMA (Marine Turtle and Dugong Project) and the Marine Conservation Biology Institute for their valuable in-kind and financial contributions.
