................................................................................................ Djerap is an amazing resource that has been a couple of years in the making. Djerap is a very significant publication because it is the first Noongar book to include the three contemporary Noongar dialects in one book. 

The cover shows the two moieties of the Noongar Nation; Waardong (Australian Raven) and Manatj (Western Long-billed Corella), representing Noongar people standing together to revive their language and culture.  

Djerap is the largest collect of Noongar birds in one publication with 198 birds listed. The book includes of a very detailed word list in the three dialects, support for the Languages other than English program and many other terms related to birds, their habitats and their life cycles. Djerap is organised into four sections reflecting habitats in the south-west of WA; Balyan-boodja (Wetlands), Moondak (Forest), Waaloo (Open Country) and Maambakoort-ngat (Coastal).

The bird photographs are amazing and are accomapnied by beautiful paintings of WA's stunning wildflowers provided by Cheryl Martin and Theresa Walley.
