Family Matters No. 75 - September 2006

The economic value of harvesting wild resources to the Indigenous community of the Wallis Lake Catchment, NSW

Matthew Gray and Jon Altman

Abstract

Despite the potential economic significance of the use of wild resources, defined as native flora and fauna, by Australian Indigenous peoples, there has been relatively little research into this issue. Using a new methodology, this article provides estimates of the economic benefits derived from the use of wild resources to the Indigenous community of the Wallis Lake catchment in New South Wales.
