Northern Border – Working on Country Plans, foundations for communities

“Heading north again?”, a friend asks me. My answer, “yeah, it’s gonna be a cracker this one”. There have been a few reflective moments in my career where I find myself feeling extremely privileged to be doing what I do. Then I remember it takes a couple of decades to get here, with a lot of support from family and significant personal and professional strategy.

Supporting Wilinggin Healthy Country Planning

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.

Reconciliation. More than a word, reconciliation takes action.

Reconciliation is a journey for all Australians – as individuals, families, communities, organisations and importantly as a nation. At the heart of this journey are relationships between the broader Australian community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. (Reconciliation Australia)

Long-term commitment: our ongoing work with the li-Anthawirriyarra Sea Rangers

It’s a long way to the town of Borroloola on Yanyuwa Country from Southern Tasmania – a couple of planes, a night in Katherine, a 10-hour drive through the deep red and bright green Northern Territory landscape. We arrive to locals fishing for barramundi on the McArthur River, grass as high as our heads that’s shot up during the wet season, termite mounds scattered through the plains some with t-shirts and hats on. Remote Northern Australia is a pretty special place with never ending skies and a stillness that accompanies the vastness.

Working in Canada in the midst of a pandemic – what that has meant for Conservation Management

Now seems like a good time to reflect on the last year and the challenges that we have all faced with the COVID-19 pandemic and what this has meant for businesses, communities and society more broadly. We work with many groups within Australia and around the world and the global lockdown definitely created some hurdles; however, it also showed us how resilient and adaptive communities can be and are. The pandemic highlighted for us that work, connection, and a sense of community is not constrained to a specific place but functions across place and time.

Framework, fire and evidence: Dampier Peninsula Fire Working Group

Some problems are so complex that the solution is beyond the reach of a single organisation. This is particularly evident in land management issues such as ferals, fire and weeds.

Conservation Management joins the Conservation Measures Partnership

The Conservation Measures Partnership (CMP) is a “partnership of conservation-oriented NGOs, government agencies, funders, and private businesses that work collectively to achieve greater impact. We seek better ways to design, manage, and measure the impacts of our conservation actions so that we can learn and improve our efforts and contribute our learning to the broader evidence base.” (https://www.conservationmeasures.org/)
