Mike Ross, Olkola Aboriginal Corporation Chair
"One of the targets with this Bush Heritage mob and us Olkola people, hopefully we’ll have the Golden-shouldered Parrot come back – big mob of ‘em! ‘Cause we’re on the borderline of them being gone and never seeing them again.
"But with this project that we’re doing now, [our aim] is to bring their population up. So hopefully the rangers and land managers and Olkola people and all involved – we can get it right for our future kids. That’s my belief; I reckon we can make it right”.
Shaded areas on the map indicate our priority landscapes – areas we’ve identified as in need of increased protection to safeguard nationally significant ecosystems. They’ve been chosen for their conservation value, our capacity to help protect them, and the degree to which they’re already protected through Australia’s National Reserve System – a combined network of public and privately protected lands.
Bush Heritage owns 42 reserves covering 1.2 million hectares. These are protected forever. We look after this country to ensure it remains healthy and natural ecosystems are thriving.
We work in partnership with 11 Aboriginal groups on their land and sea country, and 14 Traditional Owner groups on our reserves to deliver conservation and socio-economic outcomes. Our total partnerships cover a management area of 10.1 million hectares.
We collaborate with private landholders, communities, and other conservation groups across Australia that share our vision of ‘healthy Country, protected forever’. By engaging with and within communities, we achieve much more than we could working alone.
