After successful Sheep Shearing and Wool Handling Camp initiatives, a new partnership between the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD), Nyamba Buru Yawuru and the Kimberley Pilbara Cattlemen's Association (KPCA) will take the program to the next level.

The initiative will create a range of opportunities via training, school-based programs, refresher courses, mentoring and workplace placements within the Kimberley and Pilbara regions.

DPIRD’s Aboriginal Economic Development program aims to create jobs and support Aboriginal people in regional and remote areas.
