2022 KPMG Indigenous Land Management Award
Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung Cultural Heritage Aboriginal Corporation Narrap Unit
“Providing our people with meaningful, secure employment where they can not only connect with Country but elevate the cultural ecological values of Country and Aboriginal perspectives, has never been more important. We hope our work will inspire young Aboriginal people across Australia to pursue a future in conservation and land management, and join us in our commitment to restoring and managing the health of Country.” Sean Hunter, Narrap Unit Manager and Wurundjeri Elder.
The Narrap Unit cares for Wurundjeri Country by blending conventional environmental conservation and land management methods with Wurundjeri cultural practices, and is currently one of the only Traditional Owner groups within Australia delivering Natural Resource Management (NRM) services in the open market. Due to their incredible work and demand for their services, the current team of 20 full-time employees – all with a Cert III in Conservation Land Management, is expected to grow to 40 in the next year.
