These 8 short films showcase a variety of projects that involve Aboriginal partnerships with the National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) across New South Wales. They demonstrate outcomes and achievements of Aboriginal joint management and how NPWS actively engages in partnerships that involve Aboriginal communities in the protection and management of Country.

The films aim to create a greater understanding of the importance of working in partnership with Aboriginal peoples, recognising Aboriginal peoples’ connection to Country and promoting respect for Aboriginal culture and Country.
