Fact sheet: As well as culturally significant rock art, Murujuga is also home to industry that contributes significantly to the local, state and national economy and employment.
Concerns the rock art could be damaged by industrial air emissions has led to a number of independent scientific studies and rock art monitoring since the mid-2000s. Recent independent reviews identified a number of improvements that could be made to the rock art monitoring program to provide more reliable information about the impacts of air emissions on the rock art.
The Murujuga Rock Art Strategy builds on previous work to deliver an improved approach to monitoring, analysis and management that will be implemented collaboratively across the program to protect Murujuga’s rock art.
