Gunwa (sharks) - The flesh can be eaten, but large sharks are dangerous and hard to handle, often the line is cut to let them go. When they are in the area you are fishing 🎣, they are often a nuisance as they eat the fish you have on the line and break the hooks off your line.  Find out more about our Uunguu Plants and Animals in our book, you can purchase from our website www.Wunambalgaambera.org.au would make a great Christmas present!!  #sharks #wunambalgaambera #uunguu #indigenious #uunguurangers @bushheritageaus @wwf_australia  Photo by @russellordphoto thank you

Wondering what to get your family and friends for Christmas? We have a couple of ideas for you....  Our book, We Are Coming to See You, which shares our stories about our cultural sites in the Kimberley.  We did this book with Dambimangari Aboriginal Corporation and their stories are shared in it also.  We also have our sought after Uunguu Plants and Animals Book - which we just re-printed and have more in stock in time for Christmas.  You can find out our names for our plant species you might find on Wunambal Gaambera Country and what we use these plants for.  Jump on our website to purchase so we can send out straight away! https://wunambalgaambera.org.au/about/books/  If you are in the Kimberley, you can also buy our books at Kimberley Bookshop Magabala Books and Mowanjum Arts

Our Healthy Country team, Wunambal Gaambera Traditional Owners and Uunguu Rangers have been busy fighting wildfires at Ngauwudu (Mitchell Plateau) caused by lightning during Yuwala (storm season). The fire started after our tourist season closed and we have been working hard to suppress the fire and protect our Country and infrastructure.  Since our Right Way Fire program was implemented over ten years ago, we have reduced destructive wildfires by two thirds and GHG emissions by 25%.

Check out our Right-Way Fire video which we recorded this year on our cultural walk, walking country, re-connecting with our cultural (rock art) sites and sharing our stories and knowledge with our young people.

This year we walked along the King Edward River and ended at Munurru campground. Thank you to our Uunguu Rangers and Traditional Owners, our Healthy Country Manager and Mark Jones who joined us to capture Wunambal Gaambera's fire story.

Great work keeping country clean, Tabitha. 👏🏽

Great work Tabitha!

Ahh awesome!

Good work lala😘

Agurla….  In our Wanjina Wunggurr culture, Agurla is often spoken of in our stories of creation and in our daily lives as we walk Country.  Agurla is a tricky spirit, sometimes bad, occasionally humorous, who reminds people not to steal or to wander into someone else’s camp. There are many stories to remind children to stay near camp and follow the rules.  This Agurla pictured is found at Munurru (King Edward River) campground, one of our visitor locations on Wunambal Gaambera country. During the tourist season, Traditional Owners and Uunguu Rangers do tours of our cultural sites, sharing our unique Wanjina Wunggurr culture.  You can find out more about our culture in a book we wrote with Dambimangari Aboriginal Corporation, We Are Coming to See You, which shares our people’s stories of our cultural (rock art) sites.  Buy our book online www.WunambalGaambera.org.au or at @mowanjum_arts in Derby  @magabalabooks or @kimberleybookshop in Broome.  #rockart #wanjinawunggurr #kimberley #aboriginalculture @auspost @rock_art_australia @kimberleylandcouncil @walajabroomebushhoney @rachbeadle @kimberley_outback_tours @aptouring @outbackspirit @parkeerin @broomeadvertiser @kimberleyconcierge @visitkununurra @derby_visitor_centre @visitbroome @australiasnorthwest @bushheritageaus @telstra

Wunambal Gaambera Aboriginal Corporation (WGAC) was pleased to host our North Kimberley Fire Abatement Project (NKFAP) Partners on Wunambal Gaambera Country at Garmbemirri Ranger Base last week.  In addition to fire project operations, best practice, broader market developments and method considerations, the workshop focused on fire mapping and monitoring work undertaken in collaboration with WWF Australia and Darwin Centre for Bushfire Research.  It included a demonstration of a 3D visualisation tool by Rohan Fisher and fine-scale habitat mapping undertaken by Sofia Oliveira.  This work will help us keep country healthy by having new tools and technology for looking after important animals and plant communities with fire, and to demonstrate the progress we are making.  NKFAP is made up of 4 native title groups with fire carbon projects: Wilinggin Aboriginal Corporation, Dambimangari Aboriginal Corporation, Balanggarra Aboriginal Corporation, Wunambal Gaambera Aboriginal Corporation, and is supported by the Kimberley Land Council.
