The vessel ‘Mayabula’ was given its name by Elders Gwen Peck and Hazel Walgar in honour of a Baiyungu hero, the head fisherman of the tribe. Mayabula will be used to conduct patrols of the Ningaloo Marine Park, to facilitate research projects and respond to marine wildlife incidents such as whale entanglements.
.
The naming of the vessel comes at an important point in time with the commencement of Joint Management of Cape Range National Park and Ningaloo Marine Park with Traditional Owners.
