Wirrinyah Conservation Services

 

“Wirrinyah” means coming back in Yugara language. It represents the ongoing revival of Yugara ways of being and doing through caring for country.

Our staff have strong connections to South East Queensland namely, Yugara (Yerongpan, Gungin-jin, Miguntyin, Gatteebil clans) and Yugembeh (Mullunjali, Wangerriburra, Koombumerri clans).

We focus on working with businesses, Government and land owners in South East Queensland to restore our natural areas, conserve our native species and protect Aboriginal cultural heritage sites for the enjoyment of all Australians.
