Traditional owners of South Australia’s Adnyamathanha lands dedicated Australia’s very first Indigenous Protected Area in 1998. Today there are 55 Indigenous Protected Areas across Australia covering more than 43 million hectares.

This book recognises this tremendous achievement and testament to the very hard work and dedication of Australia’s Indigenous communities to manage their land and sea.
