This record details the TUMRAs that were in effect in 2009. Since then the number of TUMRAs has significantly increases. For the latest agreements refer to GBRMPA. Traditional use activities in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park are managed under the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Act 1975, and the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Regulations 1983. The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Zoning Plan 2003 recognises that under section 211 of the Native Title Act 1993, native title holders may undertake traditional use of marine resources in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. Traditional Use of Marine Resources Agreements (TUMRAs) are formal agreements developed by Traditional Owner groups and accredited by the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority (GBRMPA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). TUMRAs describe how Traditional Owner groups work with government to manage traditional use activities in sea country. A TUMRA may describe, for example, how Traditional Owner groups wish to limit their take of turtle and dugong, their role in compliance and their role in monitoring the condition of plants and animals, and human activities in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park.
