Our longest partnerships are with the many farmers who have generously provided access to their properties over the last 20 years. These farmers have enabled our field team to collect biodiversity data from more than 900 sites in the south-eastern wheat-sheep belt. This is one of the largest long-term monitoring and research studies of its kind in Australia.
This data provides invaluable information for farmers and other land managers who need to make decisions to maintain and improve biodiversity in production landscapes.
At the core of our approach is enabling farmers to share the knowledge they have gained through undertaking natural asset management practices on their farms. We work with a number of farmers who host field days on their properties, participate in research workshops, contribute to policy and research discussions, or share their experiences through case studies and stories.
