Traditional Owner Partnerships

The Corangamite Catchment Management Authority is committed to building and strengthening our partnership with Traditional Owners. We are committed to engaging and working with Traditional Owners to manage and improve the health of lands and waters and to embrace cultural ways of Caring for Country and working together to support increased participation and engagement in Natural Resource Management. Waterways within the Corangamite region are living and integrated natural entities and the Traditional Owners, both Wadawurrung and Eastern Maar are the voice of these living entities.

The Corangamite CMA has worked with the Traditional Owner Groups to align the outcomes and priority directions in this Regional Catchment Strategy with the aspirations and priorities identified in their respective Country Plans. The outcomes below have been developed in partnership with the Traditional Owner group, and the content on their specific pages has been drafted by the individual Traditional Owner groups.
