Batemans Bay Local Aboriginal Land Council

The Batemans Bay Local Aboriginal Land Council is exploring the viability of running a logging and firewood enterprise utilising a large area of forested property. The objective is to earn a commercial return on the land from the harvesting of the forest, while providing training opportunities for local, unemployed Aboriginal men and women who might use this experience to gain long-term meaningful employment in the region's forestry industry.

The RARE Program is supporting BBLALC's development of this enterprise, engaging with industry, local businesses, the community and a variety of their stakeholders while regularly reporting to BBLALC's management.
