Celebrating International Women’s Day on Country

International Women’s Day, celebrated on March 8, is a global celebration of the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

This year’s theme, #EmbraceEquity, aims to get the world talking about why “equal opportunities are no longer enough”.

Equity means creating an inclusive world where people are not only given the same resources and opportunities but one that recognises that when we embrace equity, we embrace diversity, and we embrace inclusion.

This International Women’s Day, through our Revive our Wetlands project, we aim to create an inclusive space where we can all celebrate cultural achievements; recognising, cherishing and building upon our connections.

The knowledge, attributes and approaches of women are integral to a balanced approach to caring for land and sea. The traditional ecological knowledge and historical cultural practices Indigenous women have aggregated and shared over time are essential to today’s land management needs. Traditional management practices and ancestral creation stories, together with in-depth knowledge of flora, fauna and habitat dynamics, have supported wetlands for tens of thousands of years, as they do now, and will for generations to come.


Join us this International Women’s Day and support women everywhere in conservation.
