The Budadee Foundation is currently developing a Cultural Protocols Policy that:

  • Sets ethical guidelines for visitors, researchers and proponents for engaging with the Traditional Owners and access to Woodstock-Abydos Protected Reserve (WAPR);
  • Advises visitors, researchers and proponents of the values and customary obligations of Traditional Owners;
  • Informs Foundation policies regarding Intellectual Property (IP) and Traditional Knowledge (TK);
  • Sets procedures for people wishing to access heritage places or conduct research within the WAPR; and
  • Ensures that Traditional Owners benefit from research conducted on their land and in their communities.
