A collaborative approach

Collaboration is how we work, be it with our neighbours, our Aboriginal partners, research partners, supporters or our volunteers.

The South Australian Department for Communities and Social Inclusion recently contributed funds toward the development of ‘Grab Bags’ for our South Australian Reserves.

Grab Bags are utilised on all of our reserves and are central to our safety procedures for any field-related work. Each bag contains a satellite phone, SPOT device, spare lithium batteries, first aid kit, sufficient water and food rations. Through the support of this grant we were able to create 7 new grab bags for the region.

We put the call out late on a Thursday afternoon for volunteer assistance to sew the Bush Heritage logo patches onto our South Australia bound Grab Bags and by 9am the next morning we had a huge list of skilled seamstresses offering support.

Sandra Hand from New South Wales, who is a Bush Heritage stalwart and who has weeded, removed and built fences and care-taken reserves all over the country, took on this role and worked tirelessly to hand-stich the bags ready for dispatch.

Thank-you Sandra, for your extraordinary skill and efforts, which once again demonstrate the diversity of expertise that our volunteers continue to offer Bush Heritage and the benefits of working collaboratively.
