Pulu is an islet of immense cultural significance to the Goemulgal, the people of Mabuyag (Mabuiag Island). In April 2009, the Goemulgal declared Pulu an Indigenous Protected Area (IPA) under the National Reserve System, Australia's national system of protected areas. They also developed a culturally-appropriate IPA Plan of Management, to assist them to look after this special place, which combines traditional laws and customs with Western approaches to protected area management.
