Mogo Aboriginal Land Council Receive $34,600 For Mogo Midden And Mangrove Rehabilitation And Protect

Mogo Local Aboriginal Land Council has received a $34,600 NSW Government grant to protect, conserve and restore one of our local cultural landscapes, Member for Bega, Andrew Constance announced today.

Mr Constance said the grant funds would go towards rehabilitating a registered midden of cultural and historical significance to the local Mogo Aboriginal community.

“The midden has become degraded by rabbits who have caused considerable erosion at the site.

Project activities will be implemented by the Mogo Environmental Rangers who will work with the Local Land Services and Eurobodalla Shire Council to eradicate rabbits, control erosion and propagate and plant mangroves at the site,” Mr Constance said.

“This is great news for our local Aboriginal Community as they can now commence the restoration works and protect these historical sites.

“The Protecting Our Places grant program aims to increase the amount of culturally significant Aboriginal Land protected, enhanced and managed by local Aboriginal community groups and land managers,” said Mr Constance.

As part of the program, 12 Aboriginal community groups and organisations across NSW share over $700,000 in funding to undertake various projects.

The program provides opportunities for Aboriginal community groups and organisations to support and build their cultural land management practices. Media Release
