This report provides information on a year-long trial participatory monitoring program undertaken at river country sites significant to Gooniyandi people. The research was funded through TRaCK (Tropical Rivers and Coastal Knowledge Research Hub) and undertaken by CSIRO Ecosystem Sciences. A research agreement covering terms such as protection of religious knowledge, publication of information and payment for expertise, was negotiated with the Wagiman, the Northern Land Council and CSIRO at the commencement of the project in 2008.
