Science is vital to our conservation management. Our ecologists work hand-in-hand with land managers to plan and deliver effective conservation management for Australia’s species. We use science to inform, monitor and adapt our conservation strategies and actions, as well as to advance solutions to key conservation problems.
An integral part of our science program is working with our partners to build skills and conservation capacity, through planning, ecological survey and research. This is a two-way process, with knowledge exchange and learning moving in both directions. Together, we protect biodiversity on a much larger scale – creating healthier, more resilient ecosystems that benefit people as well as our native species.
Bush Heritage uses science to:
- Inform decision making using existing knowledge;
- Generate new knowledge through research and modelling; and
- Design biological surveys and ecological monitoring.
This Science Plan is our blueprint to increase capacity and collaboration across all three areas of our science program.
