The Yirriganydji TUMRA

Our Culture

Added by Styledia

Description Since 2010, Yirrganydji Traditional owners became increasingly concerned about the issues affecting their traditional sea country from Cairns to Port Douglas, North Queensland. So various Yirrganydji families and people initiated the development of a TUMRA with the assistance of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority over the following years.

Through the TUMRA program, we aim to foster sustainability and protection of the Great Barrier Reef, continue our culture and be engaged in the management of our sea country. We, as the Yirrganydji traditional owners of the Cairns to Port Douglas coastline, believe it’s a shared responsibility on looking after country. So we wish to work in partnership with others on preserving the outstanding values of the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area for the future.
