Acknowledgement of Country

Vets for Climate Action acknowledges First Nations Peoples, the traditional custodians who cared for the country upon which we work and meet for over 60 000 years; its land, oceans and rivers, its trees and wildlife. We pay our respects to their Elders past and present. We acknowledge that this land was never ceded.

In the spirit of reconciliation, Vets for Climate Action recognises the generosity of the Uluru Statement of Heart and its invitation to Australian people from First Nations Australians to walk together to build a better future. 


This map attempts to represent the language, social or nation groups of Aboriginal Australia. It shows only the general locations of larger groupings of people which may include clans, dialects or individual languages in a group. It used published resources from the eighteenth century-1994 and is not intended to be exact, nor the boundaries fixed. It is not suitable for native title or other land claims.
