Galangoor Djali (good day)

My name is Jade Gould; I have been newly elected to the Butchulla Aboriginal Corporation Board of Directors.

I have also been given the responsibility of building a relationship with FINIA and FIDO. The Butchulla people acknowledge the good work done for country by these groups. 

I spent all of my childhood on Butchulla country growing, learning and connecting. What is good for the country comes first is a traditional Butchulla lore that guides me and my work, and this is what inspired me to pursue a university education. In 2015, I graduated from James Cook University with a Bachelor of Science majoring in Ecology and Conservation. I strongly believe that western science and Traditional Knowledge are two complementary sets of data we can use to better inform management practices.

I aim to use knowledge gained at university, and my professional career coupled with Traditional Ecological Knowledge learnt while living on country to help better manage country.  I look forward to gaining more knowledge about country and building better relationships with our stakeholders.
