OUR MISSION

Terrain’s mission is to inspire world leading collaborative solutions that strengthen our living world, communities and economies. We are part of Australia’s network of natural resource management bodies, specialising in the planning, design and delivery of projects to maintain and restore healthy tropical ecosystems.

Our focus is to bring positive and sustainable change to the following:

OUR CORE SERVICES

NRM PLANNING

Our award winning approach to planning combines the latest science with local knowledge to provide independent, balanced and objective information, prioritise actions and design solutions to the most pressing environmental challenges in the Wet Tropics.

KNOWLEDGE SHARING

We are the custodians of the region’s natural resource management plan that was developed after extensive community consultation. We have built a huge library of knowledge and information about the Wet Tropics environment over the past 15 years which is publicly available through the Wet Tropics Plan for People & Country, an interactive website to identify the community’s priorities for funding NRM projects that includes mapping tools for the community.

SCIENTIFIC MONITORING

From monitoring endangered mahogany gliders to real-time water quality monitoring, we undertake a range of environmental activities.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT

We have successfully project managed and delivered many on-ground projects ranging from small budget ones to large and complex projects resulting in significant environmental outcomes.

CAPACITY BUILDING

From soil health and natural grazing practices to fire management and revegetation techniques, we build knowledge and capacity in the community and empower individuals and groups to undertake their own projects.

INNOVATION

We’ve been recognised nationally for our innovative culture and systems. We are leading the development of new eco-system service markets and we support the trial of new environmental management systems and processes.

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

We build awareness of environmental challenges in the region and engage Traditional Owners, community groups and landholders in on-ground projects.
