The Wet Tropics Regional Environment and Natural Resource Management Forum, held 14-15 March 2002, provided an opportunity for Rainforest Indigenous peoples to present and discuss ideas about land and sea management and biodiversity conservation, and in particular to address future options relating to Stage 2 of the Australian Government's National Heritage Trust (NHT).

The Forum was hosted by the NHT Bushcare Program, and organised with the support of the North Queensland Land Council, Girringun Elders and Reference Group, the Indigenous Land Corporation, Balkanu Cape York Development Corporation and the Rainforest CRC.

Presentations outlined new government policy and programs for sustainable land management and conservation. A number of case studies highlighted Indigenous approaches to land and sea management in the Burdekin Dry Tropics, Cape York Peninsula, the Queensland Murray Darling Commission, the Green Corps at Badjuballa and the Cairns TAFE Caring For Country program.
