The McGowan Government is calling for skilled experts as part of its strategy to protect the Murujuga rock art (petroglyph) collection from the impacts of industry and shipping emissions.

The Government tender seeks providers with highly specialised expertise, qualifications and experience to develop and carry out a world-best practice monitoring program – key to the State’s recently released Murujuga Rock Art Strategy.

The scientific monitoring and analysis program will determine whether the rock art on Murujuga is being subject to accelerated change. It will address the limitations of past studies to deliver a scientifically rigorous approach to monitoring and analysis.

The Department of Water and Environmental Regulation and the Murujuga Aboriginal Corporation will work in partnership to oversee the monitoring program, and evaluate and report on changes and trends in the condition of the rock art.

Information for applicants is available on the Tenders WA website and will be open until 11am on May 29, 2019.
