As part of the Tropical Rivers and Coastal Knowledge (TRaCK) research program, we documented and quantified Aboriginal social and economic values of aquatic resources and identified their flow links in the first study of its kind in Australia. The research was conducted over three years (2008-2010) in two tropical river catchments—the Daly River in the Northern Territory and the Fitzroy River in Western Australia—where water planners needed information on Aboriginal people’s water requirements.
Narrated by traditional owner, Patricia Marrfurra McTaggart, this video focuses on the research conducted in the Daly River catchment.

What impact are feral cats having on native animals in Kakadu National Park? Earlier this year Northern Territory Government scientists Graeme Gillespie and Danielle Stokeld presented the results of a major predator exclusion experiment near Kapalga to the park’s staff. Discover their findings here from Graeme (Video Part 1).

The impacts of gamba grass in Litchfield National Park (NT) and how NERP research is helping park managers better direct their resources to control the threat have been highlighted in a new video. Gamba grass is a serious environmental problem in northern Australia. The grass was heavily promoted and highly valued as an alternative pasture for cattle during the 1980s, due to its prolific growth and an ability to thrive under harsh conditions. In the 1990s, the weed began to spread outside pastoral land. A lack of information about its biology and environmental impacts at the time sparked several Charles Darwin University research projects, led by Associate Professor Samantha Setterfield under the Hub. In the video, Dr Setterfield explains how researchers are continuing to quantify the weed’s current impacts and spread patterns, while Northern Territory Parks’ rangers explain how the research is underpinning a five year integrated conservation strategy for the park.
A day in the life of Yirralka Rangers and their love for the job is highlighted through this documentary film, ‘Let’s care for this country.’ The film is co-directed and co-written by the Yirralka Rangers and the Blue Mud Bay community of Baniyala and is intended for a wider audience. It highlights the importance of the ranger program to the community, the diversity of ranger roles, ranger participation in traditional Yolngu practices, and the beauty of the country they live and work in.
