James Price Point Ethnobiological Report

Client: Kimberley Land Council (KLC)
Location: James Price Point, WA
Dates: 2010 – 2011
Collaborators: KLC, Traditional Owner representatives

The James Price Point Ethnobiological Report was prepared for the purposes of the Strategic Assessments being conducted by the Commonwealth Government into the proposed development of a common user Liquefi ed Natural Gas hub precinct at James Price Point, envisaged to process gas from the Browse Basin.

Ethnobiology refers to the relationship between a place and the Traditional Owners of that area, in particular, practices concerning biological elements such as marine and land based flora and fauna. James Price Point is the country of the Goolarabooloo and Jabirr Jabirr people. In collaboration with Traditional Owners from both groups and the KLC, UDLA produced a report which addressed and assesses the potential operational impacts of the LNG Precinct on the existing ethnobiological condition and its ecological components e.g. water, soils, geology and topography.
