Media & events

Since our organisation was founded in 2001, our programs have often been in the news. We have also been involved with many events that have shared knowledge and experiences and distributed communication material about our programs.


We regularly issue media about our work and we provide authoritative comment and information on issues affecting the management and development of north Australia.

Need an expert opinion? NAILSMA can provide expert comment on a number of specialist topics. This ranges from program-specific comment to more generic issues relating to our work in areas such as carbon farming and water reform. If you’d like to request a speaker from NAILSMA please contact us - see media contacts above.


A key element of NAILSMA's work is bringing together Indigenous people, ranger groups and organisations to share knowledge and experiences, particularly the intergenerational transfer of Indigenous Knowledge.
