Julian Gorman

Primary tabs

Julian has been employed at CDU since 1999. His qualifications include a Botany Degree from University of Western Australia (1990), a Graduate Diploma in Resource and Environmental Management from Australian National University (1996) and Graduate Certificate in Geographic Information Systems from Charles Darwin University (2004). 

Julian is involved in both teaching and research. He co-ordinates the third year unit SID 300 Professional Placement in Science and the Masters unit ENV 402 Conservation and Business: Natural resource-based enterprise and local livelihoods. He is involved in an ACIAR funded project which is reviewing the potential for floriculture in the NT as well as collaborating with a range of partners to fill some of the research gaps to progress an industry based on wild harvest and horticulture of Terminalia ferdinandiana (billy goat plum or Gubinge).

Between 2007 and July 2013 Julian was seconded to the Northern Land Council for 3 days a week as a Wildlife Enterprise Development Facilitator. He worked with a number of Indigenous Ranger groups to help them set up small enterprises based on consumptive and non consumptive use of wildlife - this includes domestication of native bees, harvest and value adding of bush tucker, crocodile egg harvesting, and others. Julian was also working specifically with Indigenous Land Corporation funded Ranger groups towards becoming economically self sustainable. A different model to land management involving contracts for Fee for Service work was being investigated and applied.  Land management could become more of a business in its own right into the future and provide Indigenous people with greater livelihood opportunities and an ability to remain living on their country.
