The Woppaburra Festival event was designed to allow traditional owners/descendants to be on country and sign off on two significant agreements. The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority has signed a TUMRA agreement for the next 10 years whilst NKIEEC has signed a statement of intent.
Russell Reichel the chair of the GBRMPA , Bill Ludwick the local Mayor, Woppaburra Elders, 65 traditional descendants, GBRMPA staff and NKIEEC staff were at NKIEEC for the signing of these historic agreements. A great event with much laughter, songs, workshops, reminiscing and banter about being on country. We feel privileged to be part of the positive journey with both the GBRMPA and the traditional owners.
