Reserve Manager - Pullen Pullen and Edgbaston Reserves
Bush Heritage Australia
This is an exceptional opportunity to make a very real contribution to the protection of Australia’s unique wildlife and their habitat.
Bush Heritage Australia, an independent, leading conservation not-for-profit, is seeking a Reserve Manger.
Our vision of Healthy Country, protected forever sees us work where we are needed most: in areas of high conservation value with low levels of protection. With the help of our donors, we buy and manage land, so we can protect our irreplaceable landscapes and our magnificent native species forever.
Bush Heritage Australia is a national leader in landscape-scale conservation and working with Aboriginal communities. Independent, collaborative and evidence-based, we work where we are needed most: in areas of high conservation and cultural value. In our mission to return the bush to good health, we protect and help manage with our partners 11.3 million hectares of land, providing habitat for over 6,359 native species, including at least 243 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 rare and exciting role will be responsible for implementing and leading further development of Bush Heritage’s Pullen Pullen and Edgbaston Reserve’s Management Plans. You will represent and promote Bush Heritage in the region and will also provide advice to Bush Heritage’s planning, marketing and operations programs to ensure that the goals of the organisation are efficiently achieved.
Pullen Pullen Reserve is a 56,000 Ha Nature Refuge located in Central West Queensland. Pullen Pullen Reserve was acquired by Bush Heritage Australia in 2016 to manage and research the then, only known population of Night Parrots in the world.
Edgbaston Reserve is an 8,100 Ha Nature Refuge in Western Queensland, 140 kilometres north-east of Longreach. It lies within the Great Artesian Basin and is notable for its many artesian springs and their endemic plants and animals, most notably the Red Finned Blue Eye, a critically endangered fish under the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), and considered one of the planet’s 100 most endangered species.
