The purpose of this Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) is to formally acknowledge the Parties' commitment to work in partnership and to recognise the existing strong relationship that exists between the Monaro Ngarigo and Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH).
OEH recognises the diversity of Aboriginal clans and People of the Snowy Mountains, one of those clans being the Monaro Ngarigo. The Parties to this agreement also acknowledge that many other clans have associations with the mountains. The mountains recognise the language names given by Aboriginal people and naming of places strengthens the living Aboriginal culture.
This MOU covers that area of Kosciuszko National Park South of Tolbar Road to the Victorian border, including Binjura, Bobundara, Coorartha, Dangelong, Good Good, lronmungy, Kuma, Kybeyan, Meringo, Merriangah, Mount Clifford, Myalla, Ngandang, Nimmo, Numeralla, Paupong, Quidong, Undoo, Wadjan and Wullye Nature Reserves, and Macannally State Conservation Areas.
Date MOU was signed: 26 March 2017
