Mangguru (marine turtle) 🐒 survey on Jones Island by our Uunguu Rangers, Damon Bundamarra and Desmond Williams and scientist, Scott Whiting from Department of Biodiversity Conservation and Attractions (DBCA). In these photos we are putting a tracker on a green turtle so we can monitor where the turtles go to breed, and forage. 
Last year we put three trackers on and we named the turtles.

Wanjina Wunggurr rock art and archival materials return to Traditional Owner country from German collections after more than 80 years.
In July 2022, Kim Doohan and Joh Bornman travelled to Kalumburu to present the archival materials from the German expeditions to the Northwest Kimberley in 1938 and 1955 to Wunambal Gaambera Traditional Owners. The materials related to the Wunambal Gaambera Traditional Owners are kept at the Frobenius Institute and the Weltkulturen Museum in Frankfurt, Germany. They were digitised, translated and recorded in a database the previous year.
Wunambal Gaambera Traditional Owner, Lillian Karadada (pictured centre) who attended the exhibition, said upon viewing one of the only images of her grandfather, β€œRosa, Lisa and I really enjoyed seeing the old photos and portraits of our family. There was a photo of our grandfather with a young Jack Karadada – our father and it is probably the only one which exists. That’s very special for us to see.”

A long journey but we’ll worth it in the end πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ‘

This is so cool!

Junba is a way we share our stories and our unique Wanjina Wunggurr culture. Traditional Owners prepare ngunurru (hair belts) which we dress our young fellas in for the junba.

Our old people made the belts out of hair, now we use string and wool. In this video Catherine Goonack, Wunambal Gaambera Chair and Uunguu Ranger, Tabbitha Evans make ngunurru at Munurru, King Edward River Campground before performing a junba earlier in the year.

We took some WA Museum Collections and Research scientists out to Ngauwudu (Mitchell Plateau) to collect some samples earlier in the year. 
We helped the scientists locate assassin bugs, pseudoscorpions and catch bandicoots. 
Find out more about their trip and some of the findings: https://museum.wa.gov.au/about/latest-news/wa-museum-fieldwork-research-on-pseudoscorpions-assassin-bugs-and-bandicoots-on-wu
We are looking forward to hearing more about the new bandicoot species which may have been identified?!! 
Photo below is of Taniayh Phillips, Wunambal Gaambera Traditional Owner releasing a luulun Kimberley rock rat (endemic to the North Kimberley) during the trip.
