The APY Executive Board met yesterday the 29th March 2016.

The APY Executive Board held a minutes silence in respect for ...
Mrs Woodford.

It was noted that the communities across the APY have been devastated by this sad event and are in mourning for the loss of this very special lady.

After some discussion and consideration the executive have decided that the APY and our communities will need time to come to terms with their loss.

The APY Executive has requested that the Community Cabinet that had been scheduled for May 2016 be deferred for a later date to allow the APY communities recover.

APY General Manager, Director of Administration and Executive Board

(Looking after Black-footed Rock Wallabies in the APY Lands)

One of South Australia’s most endangered mammals being brought back from the brink.

Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Land Management’s Warru Project team conducted a trapping event over four days within a feral-free fenced area otherwise known as the Pintji (pronounced “pin-chi”) located in the north east of the APY lands. The trapping was undertaken to assess and monitor one of South Australia’s most endangered mammal species, the Warru or Black-footed Rock Wallaby, (Petrogale lateralis).
