Rock art data base preserves culture

Extract from Australian Broadcasting Corporation - ABC Online, on March 21st, 2002.

Cultural Heritage officers at the Uluru-Kata-Tjuta National Park say they are setting up a database of rock art as part of a plan to protect indigenous culture.

The National Indigenous Cultural Heritage forum being held in Melbourne aims to discuss the protection and management of Aboriginal cultural heritage.

The park's Leroy Lester says the database is essential to combat losing part of their culture through the occasional graffiti and natural fading.

"It is very important for the future of Aboriginal children who have to learn about past history and early history days.

"It is really good for rock art preservation and for monitoring as well and graffiti sites before and after graffiti has been put there and how we remove it."
