Acknowledgement of Traditional Owners

In keeping with the spirit of reconciliation, Cooloola Coastcare acknowledges the Gubbi Gubbi and Butchulla peoples who are the traditional custodians of the land and sea where Cooloola Coastcare operates, and recognise that these have always been places of environmental stewardship. We wish to pay respect to their Elders - past, present and emerging - and acknowledge the important role Aboriginal people continue to play within the Cooloola community.
