    Abstract

    Contemporary land and sea management - driven by community-based planning and informed by traditional and local knowledge and scientific research - can significantly improve both biodiversity and cultural outcomes. Here, we describe the context and process of developing a boat-based survey approach to marine turtle monitoring by Indigenous rangers using a collaborative partnership model that supports Traditional Owner aspirations and conservation objectives.
