Our Work

The Conservation Ecology Centre was founded to create an Otways once more vibrant with native wildlife. Our mission is to work directly on the land and strategically with people to repair and rebalance the Otway ecosystem. We believe that caring for the environment is not an overwhelming task, it is second nature. By actioning this vital aspect of humanity we can achieve a world where respect for the environment is part of our everyday lives, integrated into every decision we make. Our future depends on our generation’s ability to take a thoughtful and integrated approach to advancement and conservation - this is an incredibly exciting prospect. Working together, we have a chance to create a world where our children - and their children - can celebrate the future.
