Conserving and restoring our natural environment
The South West of Western Australia is one of 34 recognised global biodiversity hotspots.
Our contribution to conserving and restoring our natural environment is vitally important and it relies on community and volunteer involvement.
Green Skills does much more than fence off vegetation and plant trees
Protecting ecology means considering the needs of all plant and animal species. Green Skills has a range of species focused projects, like Balijup Fauna Sanctuary – a predator-free sanctuary for securing the future for some of the unique and threatened native marsupials of the South Coast region.
Protecting and Celebrating Birds
Green Skills protects wetland habitat, monitors shorebird migration, and increases knowledge and appreciation of birds in the South Coast region.

Emerging Community Leadership Program’ for the Department of Regional Development,
Green Skills have brought significant experience in facilitating community engagement and supporting our leadership for sustainability initiatives. With their extensive network of regional contacts across southern WA, they helped us to recruit program participants, and to co-facilitate the program’s adult-learning workshops. The program received positive feedback from program participants and its success was, in no small measure, due to the expertise and support that Louise and Dawn brought to this project.
Ecojobs Services have been excellent, with works attended to and completed on time, to a high standard and within the quoted budget. The personnel are reliable, professional and prompt when working for the City. We have no hesitation in recommending Ecojobs for similar scope of works and looks forward to continuing to work with Green Skills services into the future.
