Land council calls for more govt support

Extract from Australian Broadcasting Corporation - ABC Online, on 19 April 2005

The Central Land Council (CLC) is calling for more government support of Indigenous land management programs.

The CLC is hosting the first national Indigenous Land and Sea Management Conference in central Australia.

Almost 400 people from all over Australia are at Ross River, about 80 kilometres east of Alice Springs for the conference.

The CLC says it is a good opportunity for Indigenous people involved in land management to network and to assess the success of projects.

The CLC says that people at the conference also want to deliver a strong message to the Federal Government that they need more support.

A spokeswoman says Indigenous people are working on projects such as protecting sacred sites and managing rainforests in Tasmania and Queensland.

But she says in order to keep people interested in these projects, their work needs to be recognised.
