Donation – Karrkad Kanjdji Trust

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.

RANGERS LOST……..

This is the headline I don’t want to see - and to be clear, no-one is lost. Today. But I do want to generate some discussion amongst ranger teams around this possibility, and how to create organisational cultures that protects us from it. I want to take a moment to reflect on what it means to have a safety-first culture.

Bison once roamed the great plains – A case study for training in Open Standards for the practice of conservation

Bison once roamed the Great Plains of the Americas in the millions – a central element of the socio-cultural and ecological processes that defined pre-European America. In an all-to-familiar story, the bison were largely eradicated to both cripple the Native American people and open up these rangelands for the use of new species.
