Episode 21: COVID-19 and Aboriginal communities. Alfred Wellington from Jerrinja Local Aboriginal Land Council on restrictions impacting fire and land management.

Welcome back to “A Cuppa and A Yarn” brought to you by the New South Wales Aboriginal Land Council.

The Jerrinja Aboriginal community on the NSW south coast is adjusting, as all communities are, to restrictions to help stay safe from the virus that causes COVID-19. Those restrictions are also impacting land management, as communities continue their recovery from bushfires that destroyed more than 12 million acres of land in NSW alone.

This episode, host Michelle Aleksandrovics-Lovegrove speaks with Alfred Wellington, CEO of the Jerrinja Local Aboriginal Land Council about how the LALC’s land management has changed during the pandemic.
