TUMRA Workshop

The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority (GBRMPA) held a three day Traditional Use of Marine Resources Agreements (TUMRA) workshop for Traditional Owners involved in implementing or developing a TUMRA.

Over thirty Great Barrier Reef Traditional Owners from seven groups attended the workshop in Townsville from 23-25 October 2012.

The workshop brought together Traditional Owners into an interactive learning space to share experiences about their TUMRAs that included land and sea management programs.

The TUMRA Program is one of the highest priority areas of the Reef Rescue Land and Sea Country Indigenous Partnerships Program that is managed by GBRMPA.

The TUMRA workshop was funded by the Australian Government’s Caring for our Country initiative, under the Reef Rescue Land and Sea Country Indigenous Partnerships Program.
