Greening Australia is Australia’s largest environmental enterprise. We tackle Australia’s biggest environmental challenges with the best science and the best people, who work with communities to return life to landscapes.

This role will analyse and advise on policies guiding the design, implementation and modification of the environmental Reef Aid operations. We currently have multiple large-scale project sites that have secured long-term funding and are ready for implementation.
