The Parks and reserves of the south-west Kimberley and north-west Pilbara draft joint management plan 2016 has been released for public comment with submissions closing 31 March 2017.
The draft joint management plan covers Kurriji Pa Yajula (formerly Dragon Tree Soak) Nature Reserve, Walyarta Conservation Park and the Eighty Mile Beach coastal reserves. The creation of these new parks and reserves and the preparation of a management plan are commitments under the Western Australian Government's Kimberley Science and Conservation Strategy. The reserves will be jointly managed with the area's traditional owners, the Karajarri, Nyangumarta and Ngarla peoples.
You are invited to have your say on how these parks and reserves will be managed into the future.
