An article on The West Australian - Reference group formed to protect Burrup rock art - reports that Burrup Peninsula stakeholders from the government, industry and heritage sectors are coming together to provide input into a planned State Government strategy for monitoring the area's ancient Aboriginal rock art.

The newly formed group, operational shortly, will oversee finalisation and implementation of the Burrup Rock Art Strategy, which aims to provide a long-term framework for monitoring, analysing and addressing any damage to rock art caused by emissions from nearby industrial developments.

It will include representatives from several government departments as well as Murujuga Aboriginal Corporation, Pilbara Ports Authority, the Pilbara Development Commission, City of Karratha, Yara Pilbara , Rio Tinto, Woodside, WA Museum, the UWA Centre for Rock Art Research and Management and Friends of Australian Rock Art.

Environment Minister Stephen Dawson has stated that the aim and purpose of the group is to facilitate engagement between government, industry and community stakeholders as the strategy develops. This strategy, he admits, is key to protecting the Burrup Peninsula rock art which is of immense cultural and spiritual significance to the traditional owners, and is of local, State, national and international heritage value. The scientific monitoring system will determine the management approach.

The group will be chaired by Ron Edwards, co-founder of the Graham (Polly) Farmer Foundation and former Federal politician. The Burrup Rock Art Monitoring Strategy is due to be completed by the end of this year.
