NACC gets a great amount of pride from seeing people and organisations we have supported to do environmental works in the past to then go on to support our younger generations to do the same.
Such a case is with Sandy McEwan and Gina Cross from Western Mulga, an Aboriginal-owned and operated company providing environmental land management, employment and training services throughout Western Australia.
They have worked with NACC for a number of years to deliver important natural resource management outcomes for the region – including the planting of tens of thousands of native seedlings to help restore critical vegetation in the Chapman River Wildlife Park and Moresby Range.
NACC Aboriginal Participation Coordinator Greg Burrows said, “Western Mulga has always been a reliable business partner for NACC and we value our relationship strongly, not only for the environmental outcomes, but also for what they have provided in terms of opportunities, training and employment for Aboriginal people to be working on country.”
Sandy is currently working with the Aboriginal Green Army team around the Bootenal with the City of Greater Geraldton to collect clippings to be using for revegetation. This work with the Aboriginal Green Army team will contribute towards their Conservation and Land Management certification at Regional Central TAFE.
