Michael Vyse

As Manager – Biodiversity and Restoration in Greening Australia’s Science team, Michael works at the interface of all our teams to translate good ideas into fundable Nature-Based Solutions that are impact led and can be practically delivered.

Michael has two decades of experience in both the not-for-profit and government sectors applying his facilitation and technical skills to deliver collaborative, multidisciplinary, partnership-based landscape restoration projects that achieve social and environmental outcomes.

He holds qualifications in Landscape Management and Conservation and has worked for Greening Australia for 13 years in a variety of roles. These include managing our corporate partnerships, facilitating the Great Eastern Ranges Initiative’s Southern Highlands partnership, securing funding for and delivering multi-million-dollar ecological restoration projects and embedding strategic direction and science in our Nature in Cities program.

Prior to joining our science team, he played an integral in the maintenance of the Greening Australia’s operations systems and has worked closely with our corporate and government partners to achieve social and environmental outcomes through CSR programs.

Nature in Cities is a new concept of bringing the traditional ways of protecting, conserving and restoring nature together with the challenges of urban living, working and travel. How do we connect more people with nature, ensure we’ve got clean air and water and make our urban spaces even better places for our native wildlife and people? That’s the exciting challenge Greening Australia has set itself for the future and I’m thrilled to be a part of it.
