text: The survey sites are located in the Tanami Desert, within the Central Desert, Mount Frederick and Mangkururrpa Aboriginal Land Trusts.
More than half of the sites occur within the Southern Tanami and Northern Tanami Indigenous Protected Areas. An Indigenous Protected Area (IPA) is an area of land cared for by the traditional owners (in the study area, primarily Warlpiri people, though other Indigenous people may maintain connection with this area). The aim of an IPA is to protect biodiversity and conserve the area's cultural resources. An IPA is recognised under the Australian National Reserve System and the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Categories 5 and 6, which support conservation and other sustainable uses to deliver social, cultural and economic benefits for local Indigenous communities. Central Land Council is a representative body which supports Aboriginal people to manage their land through the Aboriginal Land Rights Act 1976.
The nearest communities to the study area in the Northern Territory are Yuendumu and Lajamanu and in Western Australia, Balgo and Billiluna.
