Media and Communications Officer - Kimberley

Environs Kimberley

The Kimberley is known the world over as one the last remaining regions with little impact from industrialisation and urbanisation.

Environs Kimberley (or EK) is the Kimberley’s peak environmental not-for-profit organisation working to protect and preserve the nature of the Kimberley. Established in 1996 to protect the Martuwarra Fitzroy River, we now work across the region to provide a strong voice in support of responsible development that is locally based and compatible with the qualities and values of this special part of the world.

Working in partnership with communities, landholders and land managers, especially Aboriginal Traditional Owners and their ranger groups, we work to tackle local challenges through scientific research, monitoring, community-based planning and management.

We advocate for environmental protection while working collaboratively on the ground tackling threats and increasing community capacity to deal with them.

Environs Kimberley embraces flexible, family-friendly workplace arrangements that allow our staff to have a healthy work-life balance. The Environs Kimberley community is welcoming and supportive and we value our happy and inclusive workplace culture.
