Indigenous Ecology and Land Management

The Society recognises the importance of ecological knowledge held by Indigenous Australians and the significant contribution that Indigenous people have made historically and continue to make in managing ecological systems within Australian landscapes. Since 2010 the Society has specifically promoted the inclusion of Indigenous perspectives at our annual conference through the provision of travel grants for Indigenous Australians, and by actively supporting the organisation of annual symposia focussed on Indigenous ecology and land management. For the last two years this has also been accompanied by a conference field-trip to visit Indigenous lands and discuss local ecological and social issues relating to land management. Read more ...

Regional events are also held in various states and territories from time to time. These events aim to focus attention on ecological issues of importance and to bring together local members in activities that support their research or professional endeavours. The society welcomes proposals from any member on regional events that they would like to see. The Society also supports other initiatives such as improved collaboration between scientists and indigenous communities, science communication, and Research Chapter events. Find out more ...
