In the Aboriginal world view, people and Country (including lands, waterways and seas) are interdependent entities that are intrinsically linked in thelandscape through cultural and spiritual significance. There is no separation of nature and culture - the health of the natural environment and culturalwellbeing of Aboriginal people is directly influenced by the health of cultural landscapes. Traditional ecological knowledge is passed down fromgeneration to generation and continues to the present day. Through dispossession and mismanagement of Aboriginal lands and waters, with adisregard for culture, knowledge and understanding, Aboriginal people have witnessed the detrimental effects upon both their people and theenvironment.
