Regional Partnerships

The Great Eastern Ranges’ (GER) regional partnerships model catalyses action by bringing people together to deliver a coordinated on-ground effort. GER forms relationships with already established regional partnerships in priority focus landscapes or supports the creation of new ones to meet shared conservation goals and objectives. Through our regional partnerships, we work closely with landholders, traditional custodians, communities, and organisations to identify needs and gaps in science, resources and capacity that we can help fill while tapping into the wealth of local knowledge and skills.
