Summary
"Lying on either side of Hobart on the eastern coast of Tasmania, Risdon Cove and putalina (Oyster Cove) Indigenous Protected Areas (IPAs) were declared in July 1999. Both IPAs are managed by the Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre, and are important cultural and spiritual sites for the local community. They are among 11 areas returned to the Tasmanian Aboriginal community under the Aboriginal Lands Act 1995. The IPAs protect richly diverse estuarine and ecosystems, as well as areas of remnant bush, open paddocks and artefact sites. Both environments have been modified since European settlement, with land cleared of native vegetation. The IPAs now suffer from the effects of introduced weeds and feral animals such as cats and rabbits. putalina is of great importance to the Tasmanian Aboriginal community. Midden sites along the waterways are evidence of extensive shellfish gathering over long periods of time. It is also known as a site where Aboriginal people were incarcerated and many died of disease and despair." -- [From web page]
