some time to be able to better reflect our values as a company
Social Enterprises are organisations that
In practice, this means that our purpose is written into our business rules and corporate documents and guides everything we do, and we will continue to push both our day to day work and reinvest 70% of any profits we generate toward our purpose.
Conservation Management’s reinvestment – We give back financially
with direct gifts annually, or through pro-bono support – primarily
to people and programs that are applying the open standards
and need support to move to the next stage of the process.
We are really excited to continue to explore the opportunities
to create the positive changes that this brings.
Communicating openly is important
to us and an essential part of how we work

Shared purpose – Social and Environmental Enterprise reinvestments
Iconic journey, that’s the only way to describe travelling up the Gibb River Road in April after a stonker (big) wet season. The road, a single bush track with green grass creeping up to its edges, is waiting to be graded or mowed down by tourists. The intersecting ranges are broken up by full waterways lined with paperbarks and Pandanus. We are travelling through Wilinggin Country, home of the Ngarinyin people.
At the end of each year, we ask all staff to put forward organisations they think do great work to help communities manage the places that are important to them, to be considered for an annual gift.
We occupy an extremely fortunate space in conservation – we don’t rely directly on government or even philanthropic funds.
Since establishment in 2012, Conservation Management has been working towards certification as a Social Enterprise.
Now in 2018 we have achieved our goal and are certified as a Social Enterprise by Social Traders Australia.
Operating as a Social Enterprise pervades all aspects of our work and interactions.
Conservation Management continues its partnership with Banjima people and provides conservation support services to help with Banjima Country Management’s establishment in Tom Price and guide the implementation of the ranger program, as per the Banjima Yurlubajagu Strategic Plan.
