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/)

Income for country – purpose driven partnership

In 2019, Conservation Management’s Dave Whitelaw and GreenCollar’s Dave Moore were yarning after a busy day of meetings and shared a lightbulb moment.

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.

Introducing our new Director

Conservation Management continues to seek out the best people who bring a variety of skills, experience, networks and perspectives to our team. We deliver tailored support for the organisations and communities we work with. This helps them to get the necessary resources and implement the right actions to improve the health of their landscapes.

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.
