Working on Country
GBR Biology have partnered with Traditional Owners, elders and local Indigenous Land and Sea Country Ranger groups to provide the appropriate cultural awareness and protocols ensuring we share and safeguard the cultural values of their respective peoples. The First Nations individuals share their knowledge and engage with our valued guests, education programs, research and site stewardship projects. GBR Biology engage in educating staff members to ensure cultural sensitivity and a respectful communication between groups as we build bridges with Traditional Owners.
To Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, “Country” is not only a place of belonging, but also a way of believing. The term “Sea Country” isn’t just referring to a geographical area, it includes all living things, beliefs, values, creation stories, spirits and cultural obligations associated with it. We are proud to immerse ourselves in the culture of the First Nations people and be a part of building bridges and providing opportunities within this space.
