Lake Gregory

Lake Gregory

Region: Kimberley


Overview:

Lake Gregory–or Paraku in the Walmajarri language–is a permanent freshwater lake that plays host to significant environmental and cultural assets as well as being a major stop over for migratory shore birds. The lake has seen significant historic damage from large numbers of unmanaged feral herbivores.

An opportunity exists to work with traditional owners and new pastoral interests to manage the lake sustainably with a view to expand land management opportunities such as fire, weeds and ferals up the entire catchment.
