Front Cover
Department of Environment and Conservation (NSW), 2005 - Aboriginal Australians - 126 pages
"Ray Kelly became the first Aboriginal person employed by the National Parks and Wildlife Service when he joined the agency in May 1973. Ray worked as Aboriginal Research Officer on the NSW Sites of Significance Survey. Concluded in 1987, the survey was the first tentative step taken towards the documentation of Aboriginal heritage across New South Wales. The work of Ray Kelly and other members of the survey team wrought immense change in NPWS management, conservation and knowledge of Aboriginal cultural heritage. For Ray, the survey and his work with National Parks were always more than just a job. Through his own words, and the memories of friends, family and colleagues, "Revival, Renewal and Return" reflects upon Ray's pioneering work with the NPWS, especially during the formative years of the survey."--NPWS website.
