Gubinge harvest season approaching
The Gubinge harvest season is approaching with many Gubinge trees in Western Australia already flowering in what promises to be a productive harvest season for the begining of 2021.
NAAKPA enterprises in Western Australia urge wild harvesters to secure commercial flora pickers licences through WA Parks and Wildlife Service and also to recieve written permission to harvest from land owners and Traditional Owners. They also expect wild harvesters to harvest in a sustainable way, by not damaging trees, or leaving rubbish in harvesting areas, and leaving some fruit on trees for native fauna as stipulated by licence requirements. Some places have harvest restrictions, and those harvesting will need to consult with appropriate managing authorities.
NAAKPA is interested in improving how wild harvest is managed by sharing information between Aboriginal enterprises, Traditional Owner groups and WA Parks and Wildlife Services.
