1 PERTH ZOO S RECONCILIATION ACTION PLAN

2 PERTH ZOO RECONCILATION ACTION PLAN introduction At Perth Zoo we recognise, appreciate and respect the contribution of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in enriching Australia s culture, through their rich and unique culture and traditions. We recognise that Australia s Aboriginal and the Torres Strait Islander peoples were the first care takers of our native fauna and their habitats, and that there is a great deal of knowledge we can learn from their cultures traditions and understandings of our environments. At Perth Zoo we want to strengthen existing and establish new relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples that will help us to discover new ways of working together that benefit our community and our nation s natural heritage.

3 PERTH ZOO RECONCILATION ACTION PLAN our vision for reconciliation Our vision for reconciliation between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Western Australians includes a better future for our state and our nation as a whole. A future, where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are able to fulfill their cultural, personal and professional needs and aspirations, participate fully and share equally in the benefits of our state and our nation. Perth Zoo recognises that by valuing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, heritage, cultures and knowledge, we facilitate reconciliation within our organisation, which will extend to our visitors and the Perth and other communities that we are a part of.

4 PERTH ZOO RECONCILATION ACTION PLAN our business Perth Zoo is located in South Perth a short ferry ride across the Swan River from the Perth central business district. Established in 1898, Perth Zoo is open to the community every day of the year. Over time the Zoo has evolved to become an important conservation agency working in partnership with other agencies to conserve local Western Australian, regional and global species in sustainable populations. Zoos have an important role in creating community awareness and understanding of the natural world, the threatening processes and the actions that people can take to assist conservation efforts. Perth Zoo works with other zoos and conservation agencies in collaborative research, breed for release, conservation medicine and education programs. Perth Zoo provides visitors with the opportunity to encounter the natural world and to become involved in conservation action. Our vision, which inspires and directs our work, is to secure long term populations of species in natural environments while engaging the community in global conservation action. Perth Zoo, with over 600,000 visitors a year and a setting rich in Australian plants and animals, is uniquely placed to provide opportunities to promote better understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and their culture, heritage and knowledge. Our agency employs approximately 220 staff in a mix of full time and part time positions.

5 PERTH ZOO RECONCILATION ACTION PLAN our reconciliation action plan (rap) Our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) is a key element of Perth Zoo s approach and commitment to improving outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The Perth Zoo RAP was developed by a working group of senior staff from the following sections, Human Resources, Visitor Services, Business, the Zoo Shop, Australian Animals Keepers section, Discovery and Learning, Horticulture and was overseen by the Corporate. Two cadets, Michael Dann and Stacey Maxted, were with us the whole way providing advice, input and assisting with the drafting of the RAP which provided valuable experience in policy writing as they prepared to embark on their own professional careers. Since the formation of the RAP working group in March 2010 the individual members spent time consulting with their respective teams within the agency and developing ideas for what could be included in the RAP. A workshop followed to scope out the draft plan which then went through a consultation process with the Western Australia Department of Indigenous Affairs, as an agent for Reconciliation Australia s Reconciliation Action Plan Program, and then endorsement by Reconciliation Australia. Perth Zoo has continued to progress initiatives, activities and projects during this consultation period.

6 PERTH ZOO RECONCILATION ACTION PLAN our reconciliation action plan (rap) While the Corporate Executive as a whole will assist with driving the implementation of the RAP, the will chair meetings of the RAP Working Group to ensure the recommendations are achieved and coordinate reporting requirements. The has worked with local Aboriginal people to review aspects of the RAP and gain advice on who to contact for assistance in implementing actions and the correct use of local Aboriginal names for animals at Perth Zoo. The aims of our Reconciliation Action Plan are: To raise awareness amongst our staff and visitors of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples culture, heritage, knowledge and achievements as they relate to our business To employ and promote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who are keen to learn and understand the Zoo s role in conservation The Perth Zoo s is responsible for assisting the RAP Working Group to oversee the implementation of the RAP.

12 Perth Zoo Open 7 days 9 am 5 pm 20 Labouchere Rd South Perth WA hour infoline: (08) Telephone: (08) (Monday Friday) perthzoo.com.au SNAPSHOTS By Narelle Henry Featured on pages 1, 2, 3, 5 and 12 This artwork is a series of simple personal experiences seen as snapshots throughout the years. In my life, I have endeavoured to learn and draw strength from thousands of years of culture and heritage. In the teachings of my grandparents, to the simple surrounds of the desert and waiting for our feed to cook, the images have been photographed in my mind and as I burn them into wood, my hope is they will forever be seared in my memory. I don t know as much I would like about the heartbeat, or the pulse, that is my Aboriginality but it is a powerful movement all the same. And, it emerges and overwhelms the surface of who I am, where I have come from and where I want to be. It presents itself in dreams, in people and inevitably it is represented, honoured and remembered through art. This paper is 100% recycled.
