Protecting Country is about people, place and planet.

We have a responsibility to respect and listen to First Nations voices and standpoints and, in all that we do, improve the health and wellbeing of the planet we share. Everything we do and every decision we make is underpinned by a commitment to Protecting Country. Country is both a place of belonging and a way of believing, as well as contributing to the conservation of critical environmental and diverse cultural assets.

It is a community-driven movement towards long-term social, cultural, physical and economic prosperity and sustainability.

We honour our deep diversity as a foundation for collaboration and social progress. This is central to our Protecting Country commitment.
