Project 6.2.2 This research project will explore how Indigenous aspirations for conservation management are incorporated into collaborations with western conservation scientists by 1) exploring Indigenous engagement in species management under different governance regimes at the national scale; 2) identifying the conservation values and priorities of Tiwi landowners and 3) comparing Tiwi perspectives to those of western conservation scientists and the values and priorities embodied in policy and legislation. The project will explore how prospective collaborations might best deliver benefits to Tiwi landowners as well as improved outcomes for threatened species populations.
