We recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as Australia’s first scientists, with deep and enduring knowledge of the land, waters, and skies.

We continue to learn and incorporate Indigenous knowledges and and perspectives in the work we do to protect our rich biodiversity and address urgent global issues facing our environment today, and are committed to work towards greater research, engagement and inclusion with Indigenous Australia.
