    This project focuses on the biologically and culturally rich Ngururrpa Country, which lies between the Balgo and Kiwirrkura communities, south of Halls Creek. It covers 30 000sq/km mainly within the Mackay subregion of the Great Sandy Desert.

    The subregion has high numbers of arid zone reptiles; locally significant (small) permanent rockhole wetlands and soaks; nine fauna species at risk, and four priority flora species.

    The region is poorly represented in the conservation reserve system. It has significant biological information gaps and has not been a subject of subregional or bioregional planning for biodiversity conservation.

    This project aims to develop a natural and cultural heritage management strategy for Ngururrpa Country. The Ngururrpa traditional owners will be involved in discussions and decisions about natural and cultural heritage values, risk processes, management priorities and potential partners.

    Investment: $ 49 740
    Delivery organisation: Central Desert Native Title Services
    Project duration: August 2011 - June 2013
    Location: Ngururrpa Country (Ngururrpa Native Title Determination Lands), between the Balgo and Kiwirrkura communities, 250–450 km south of Halls Creek
