Our teams work closely with partners to deliver in excess of a hundred projects each year, ranging from small, private landholder restorations to large, multi-year projects across vast ecosystems.
Our customers and funding bodies are also our valued partners, and we are passionate about collaborating to inspire and engage communities to restore and conserve our natural environment.
Envite has extensive experience working on land management projects in partnership with traditional owners across the East Coast of Australia including on Bundjalung, Yaegl and Gumbaynggirr country.
Collaborating with local Land Councils and Aboriginal Corporations, Envite has delivered a range of projects that combine the technical skills of our bush regenerators with the skills and long-held knowledge of the custodians of the land.
Envite staff work with the Traditional Owners to understand the cultural values and protocols of the community before commencing work on country. We work alongside these communities and, together, we share our knowledge to protect and enhance the lands on which we work.
These partnerships have achieved outcomes that have high social, environmental and cultural value, and promote healthy ecosystems, create viable habitats and restore connectivity in our landscapes. Participants in our projects with Traditional Owners are handing down their knowledge and wisdom of maintaining place to develop a strong sense of purpose in their communities.
Envite staff are experienced in supporting projects with Traditional Owners, showing a deep respect for culture and country, an understanding of decision making and hierarchal structures; and communicating respectfully.View Related Projects
