Indigenous land and sea management delivers significant social-cultural, ecological and economic benefits that are realised at local to international scales. This thesis identified the critical network actors, specifically knowledge brokers acting as bridging , individuals and organisations, whose actions strengthen the involvement of Aboriginal people in land and sea management in Australia. The research revealed why the role of these network actors is crucial to the sustainability and development of Indigenous land and sea management efforts, and to Australian biodiversity more broadly; identified the factors that limit the development and sustainability of these social networks; and made recommendations for strengthening them.
