Priority Actions

Targeted weed control in priority disturbed areas, to accelerate natural regeneration.

Why it is important?

Assisting nature to undertake natural regeneration processes is much more cost effective than revegeting areas of land that no longer have strong regenerative potential. Direct support to motivated community members will enhance existing capacity.

Funding to support the formation of a Daintree Community Taskforce to steer a planning process representative of a common vision.

Why it is important?

There is an absolute imperative for a collective and aligned vision communicated through a cohesive voice.  This will enable targeted higher level lobbying and prioritized management actions on a range of issues.

Development of final version of Buru Aboriginal Corporation (BAC) Community Development Plan (CDP).

Why it is important?

Whilst Buru Aboriginal Corporation have investigated multiple options for generating a living from country there have been the ever present limitations associated with regulatory control.  A Community Development Plan is key to addressing this.

Development of a community-based environmental action group to address threats, and to work productively with partners.

Why it is important?

Sharing and coming together enables rapid community driven response to emerging issues and builds landscape and community resilience.  This Action Group could be connected to, or aligned strongly with the “Taskforce”.

Develop multiple tenure conservation agreement for Blue Hole, which recognises the site's cultural significance and brings together all key players to agree on a multi-party conservation plan for the area.

Why it is important?

Such a project could be a model and case study of Collaborative Governance, showing how cooperation is required, and that conservation is not achievable while each party remains locked within their jurisdictional limitations.

Develop and market a strong “Daintree brand” - “real ecotourism”, “real sustainable living”

Why it is important?

The economics of the Daintree are vulnerable, its iconic status has diminished, and there are less visitors coming to bring resources to the area. We need a strong brand and multiple attractions so that more people come and stay longer.

Identify and increase controlled and careful access to special places, as well as marketing the Daintree for its astounding values.

Why it is important?

Without people being aware of something, they will not find reason to protect it – people need to understand how special it is in order to value it.  For many people this means some level of ‘experiencing’ it.
