Bush Heritage Australia
  • Bush Heritage Aboriginal partnerships

    630 views 3 months ago
    Aboriginal Australians have lived on the land for millennia, developing a strong commitment to look after it, as well as accumulating generations of traditional knowledge about the ecology.

    Whenever we buy land we seek to engage with the Traditional Owners to ensure they maintain access and a connection to Country. We value their insight, cultural perspective and collaboration.

    We also invest in partnering with Aboriginal groups who are themselves landowners – often of vast estates. We help with developing and implementing Healthy Country Plans that seek to achieve conservation goals while creating jobs and livelihood on Country to ensure the viability of long-term conservation work.

    This kind of approach has broken new ground. Our 10-year agreement with the Wunambal Gaambera people was the first long-term partnership of its kind in Australia for any conservation organisation. Since then many have followed. Show less
