The Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS) is Australia’s national knowledge institution focused on the diverse history, culture and heritage of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australia. As a world-renowned research, collections and publishing organisation, AIATSIS promotes knowledge and understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, traditions, languages and stories, past and present.

AIATSIS cares for a priceless collection, including films, photographs, video and audio recordings as well as the world’s largest collection of printed and other resource materials for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander studies. AIATSIS undertakes and encourages scholarly, ethical, community-based research in a variety of sectors, including health, native title, languages and education. Their publishing house, Aboriginal Studies Press, regularly publishes outstanding writing that promotes Australian Indigenous cultures.

AIATSIS’ activities affirm and raise awareness of the richness and diversity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and histories.


The Pew Charitable Trusts

The Pew Charitable Trusts works with Indigenous people, scientists, conservation organizations, industry, and government agencies to conserve Australia’s critical natural landscapes and marine habitats. These efforts include advocating for the inclusion of new areas in the National Reserve System, such as national parks and Indigenous Protected Areas; the funding of conservation management activities; and the creation of sanctuaries for marine life.

Since 2007, Pew has been engaged in a multi-tiered strategy of advocacy, science, and public education in Australia resulting in huge, measurable conservation gains on Outback lands and in adjacent remote seas. Our goal, together with numerous Australian partners, is to save the country’s critical wilderness and marine habitats through long-term protections, good management practices, and the elimination of ecological threats.
