EGCMN runs projects on a ‘needs basis’,  only has one part time staff member and receives no on-going funding.

We do the work because it needs to be done. We help identify the need, find the funding and collectively deliver conservation outcomes.

EGCMN runs on the good will of our volunteers and investors, which include people like you, via our membership base,  as well as grants  and donations.


EGCMN runs projects that look after and connect people with our unique natural environment and its threatened conservation values.

All EGCMN work is partnership based and run on a cooperative basis. We believe working with people is the best way to achieve sustainable long term conservation outcomes.

Fire is a natural ecosystem process in all Australian vegetation communities, but its role, positive or negative, is complex and largely dependant on the ecosystem in question, their historical, current and future fire regimes and what the management aims are.

Just as for human built assists, fire can be an important tool but also a bad master….some systems ‘need’ fire where as others do not.

The EGCMN are involved in number of fire related research projects and maintain a key interest in understanding fire in the context of ecosystem management and human community safety.

As an evidence based organisation we are always keen to learn more and welcome opportunities to collaborate with others.
