Conservation & Land Managementnsuar
Conservation & Land Management is the maintenance and restoration of the natural environment. It includes Indigenous land and sea management, management of parks and reserves, natural resource management, 'landcare' and mine-site rehabilitation.
The impacts of human demands from agriculture, mining, recreation and tourism continue to make environmental issues a critical national priority.
Looking after Australia's forests, bushlands, grasslands, wetlands and marine & coastal areas requires an understanding of how ecosystems work, biodiversity values, soil management, erosion control, revegetation, mapping, and pest plants & animals.
Industry sectors include community coordination and facilitation, soils conservation, indigenous land management, natural area restoration, vertebrate pest management, weed management, lands, parks and wildlife
The Conservation & Land Management industry offers a diverse and interesting range of rewarding career opportunities.
