A newsletter for people interested in the Australian Alps
Firstly there’s Federal Minister, Peter Garrett’s, announcement: the Australian Alps National Parks now have National Heritage Listing. For everyone associated with the Alps who lives, works within and values this landscape the Listing supports us all at a Federal level and is itself backed by the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act of 1999. So congratulations to all those who’ve helped this moment come to be.
Then there’s a report on the first meeting of the Australian Alps Indigenous Reference Group formed following an idea born from that historic First People’s gathering in 2005. Already the members are guiding co operative projects right across the Australian Alps national parks; working together, caring for country.
