The Great Eastern Ranges initiative provides the bold vision that brings people together to contribute to conservation outcomes across public and private land at the continental scale. By building long-term, inclusive partnerships across a broad spectrum of sectors and interest groups, we enable greater coordination at the local and regional level, whilst creating corridors of effort across multiple landscapes.

By bringing people together across a diverse range of sectors and interest groups to create long-term, inclusive partnerships that empower local groups, GER achieves far more than the sum of its parts.
To drive effective, consistent, high-quality environmental, social and economic outcomes, GER builds capacity at the individual and organisational level and facilitates the cross-sharing of critical knowledge and learnings.
Science and research
Our work is grounded in the best available science, guiding our resources and investment, and ensuring that effective projects are developed and implemented in the right places at the right time.
We use a science and evidence-based approach to achieve what nature needs; prioritising regions and actions across the ranges to drive the greatest impact and outcomes on the ground.
GER plays a vital advocacy and lobbying role for connectivity conservation by promoting its multiple benefits and best practice science across sectors, land tenures and state boundaries.
What is connectivity conservation?
Connectivity conservation is a concept that recognises that habitats and species survive and adapt better when they form part of a large, interconnected network that is maintained and protected for nature by involving people.
