"You need us. You need our knowledge. We've been here for so long, and that knowledge has been passed down from generation to generation" - Sonya Takau, Jirrbal Traditional Owner

It will take decades of effort and collaboration to heal Country after the devastating 2019-20 bushfires. Australia is the ‘lucky country’, where First Peoples practice and pass down centuries of expertise caring for Country. Australian nature needs this knowledge. In honour of Indigenous Voices month, we listen. In this inspiring video, leading Indigenous conservation voices explain how Traditional Knowledge and land management is key to recovering the landscapes and animal populations that were decimated.

WWF-Australia's mission is to restore and regenerate areas of Sky, Country and Saltwater in ways that will allow nature to heal. Donate and join the community helping to regenerate nature by 2030.
