Traditional Owner Partnerships to Restore Country

By 2030, we aim to have more than 25 active partnerships with Indigenous organisations and nation groups to support employment on, reconnection with and restoration of country in the Great Barrier Reef.

The Great Barrier Reef supports the culture and livelihoods of 70 Traditional Owner groups who have been its custodians for over 60,000 years, yet they are largely excluded from its management.

Together Greening Australia and Traditional Owners are ready to restore 2,000 hectares of eroded land and 10,000 hectares of wetlands at priority sites using proven solutions to prevent 400,000 tonnes of sediment from polluting the Reef each year, improving water quality, the Reef’s resilience to climate change and Indigenous livelihoods and wellbeing.

We’re connecting with nation groups and Indigenous organisations to co-design and co-deliver their vision for Sea Country, create Indigenous enterprises, stimulate environmental markets, and introduce a revolving fund that ensures long-term impact.
