The EcoGipps (ad)venture

Our work On Country

Rendere’s work is grounded in the EcoGipps venture, a private land conservation initiative established by the Phillipson family in the Avon wilderness region of Gippsland Victoria.

With the local community, conservation experts, Trust for Nature and other groups, the family is restoring and protecting four diverse properties covering over 1,000 acres, strengthening bio-links to adjacent public reserves.

This practical On Country work has revealed insights into the challenges that landholders face in protecting and restoring regional ecosystems; insights that led the family to found Land Covenantors Victoria and BioDiversity Legacy.
