Sustainable use of wildlife by Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islanders

Harvesting wildlife or ‘bush tucker’ offers employment, improved nutrition, and fulfilment of cultural and spiritual needs for Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islanders on their traditional lands and seas. This book looks at ways to ensure that wildlife harvesting can meet these needs, while at the same time being sustainable and integrated with community goals for the conservation of rare and endangered species. It recognises that indigenous Australians have the ability and right to participate in environmental management.
