Project Details


This is a collaborative project between the Tiwi Land Council (TLC) representing the Traditional Owners of Tiwi Islands and Tiwi Resources (Tiwi Rangers) Charles Darwin University (CDU), the University of New South Whales (UNSW) and Elysium EPL (EEPL) are to be conducted in the Oceanic Shoals Marine Park (OSMP). The project facilitates collaborative data collection and an understanding of oceanic climate change and connectivity through (1) visiting the OSMP to go ‘fishing for data’ in Sea Country where temperature data is collected throughout the water column (2) engaging in intergenerational and two-way knowledge exchange where cultural and biodiversity values and connections of Tiwi people to the OSMP and adjacent waters are documented and (3) engaging commercial and recreational fishers as data collaborators. The project is inclusive in its approach to monitoring, benefitting the community by valuing their contributions equally whilst improving our understanding of the OSMP.
