Linking land, people and ideas
Help care for and protect your special places
Through active partnership and collaboration with organisations and landholders, Green Skills protects and restores the natural ecology of areas from Perth to WA’s Great Southern.
Our hands-on revegetation and restoration projects build community awareness of the importance of biodiversity to a sustainable future.
Green Skills has a particular focus on weed control, shorebirds, and wetlands, and works closely with the iconic Gondwana Link program.
Revegetate Restore and Rehabilitate
Green Skills has a wealth of experience in practical, collaborative, and innovative ecological restoration; from fencing off native vegetation, revegetating important places and managing weeds.
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.

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.
