Indigenous-led and backed, ‘Back to the Bush Australia’ is a registered social and environmental charity operated and headlined by a first-generation Australian over the past decade and directed by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander persons.
Back to the Bush Australia also fosters every aspect of our commitment to preserve our natural heritage and to educate Australians on the importance of aboriginal land management. This includes sustainable prescriptions by private managers and agriculture, perpetuating endemic fire regimes to restore balance and harmony to Australia’s diverse biospheres.
Additionally, Back to the Bush Australia’s mission is to bridge the gap between rural, regional and aboriginal communities, the government, and the citizens of metropolitan Australia.
‘Back to the Bush’ actively focuses on responding to the needs of community and country, raising grass-roots awareness of Australia’s diverse environments and advancing the conservation of the land, bush culture and heritage.
The organisation’s scope includes but is not limited to: advocacy of grass-roots issues outside of the metropolitan bubble [including every aspect of Australia’s bush culture and heritage]; the spirit of volunteering and community philanthropy, engaging grassroots aboriginal mobs and working to socially and economically empower communities; advancing Australia’s diverse environments, and actively assisting communities impacted by natural disasters.
Earth’s most ecologically unique and diverse environments are found on the continent of Australia. For this reason, it is imperative that every Australian profoundly upholds the core principles of conservation.
My commitment is to fight for, and defend Australia’s environment and the extraordinary life-forces that exist within our diverse living biospheres for future generations.
Every Australian must champion the core values of conservation to preserve our unique natural assets for future generations. Because once they’re gone, they’re gone forever.
Conservation has no colour, it is colour blind.
Very few people are profoundly connected to the environment as we are, and fewer would risk their life for it. Our very ethos is on display through our actions, content, history and reports. If in doubt, we encourage you to reach out to respected Indigenous Australians we closely work with. Only they have the ultimate power and ability to judge one’s connection with the land.
