Cape York Peninsula Land Use Strategy: Land Use Program: Indigenous Management of Land and Sea and Traditional Activities in Cape York Peninsula

pdfReference Document Release date:


The Indigenous Mannagement of Land and Sea (IMLS) report was compiled by anthropologists and other specialists whose contributions relied on their long standinging familiarity with the Cape York Peninsula and the conditions of it's indigenous peoples. The IMLS study was comissioned by CYPLUS to document how the indigenous people of Cape York manage resources and are moving to manage resource in the future. This project aimed to fill a significant gap in the CYPLUS process, being the only study in the Land Use Program exclusively addressing the Cape York Peninsula's indigenous land and sea owners.
