Our vision of Healthy Country, protected forever sees us where we are needed most: in areas of high conservation value with low levels of protection. With the help of our donors, we protect and help manage 6.2 million hectares of land across the country. In our mission to return the bush to good health, we provide habitat for more than 5,800 native species, including at least 235 threatened species. Two proven approaches underline what we do: we carefully select, purchase and manage landscapes of high conservation value; and we work in partnership with others, including Traditional Owners, to achieve key conservation outcomes.

About the role

This role is responsible for the implementation of the pest animal control strategy on Bon Bon Station Reserve. The role is directly linked to providing essential management of key threats identified to the success of the burrowing bettong project and to our conservation targets for Bon Bon Station Reserve.
