Disaster Recovery

As the impacts of climate change continue to accelerate, disasters and extreme weather events are becoming increasingly more frequent and intense. To help local communities and wildlife to heal and rebuild post a climate disaster, such as a bushfire or flood, GER takes a staged approach, responding quickly to the immediate need, whilst ensuring the long-term health and resilience of our land and the natural systems upon which we depend.
  • Bushfire recovery

    The devastating 2019-2020 bushfires necessitated a coordinated and complementary effort to restore habitat and assist wildlife across eastern Australia. With the people and structures already in place, the Great Eastern Ranges was in a unique position to be able to respond to this need through a staged approach that reacted quickly to the immediate threat, whilst ensuring the long-term restoration, resilience and connectivity of our land, wildlife and communities post-fire.

  • Flood recovery

    The heavy rainfall and mega floods of Autumn 2022 devastated local communities, wildlife and landscapes across southeast Queensland and northern NSW. Many of the areas that were the hardest hit were still recovering from the aftermath of the Black Summer bushfires which followed many years of drought. With an established network of regionally based partnerships in priority locations, GER was well-positioned to work with first responders to plan and build a strategic, long-term approach to recovery that complements and builds on existing efforts.
