Environment & Natural Resource Management

Terri Janke and Company understands the importance of Indigenous Knowledge in caring for country and acknowledges the natural resource management that has existed on this continent for generations. Bringing a strong background in Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property (ICIP) and the role this plays in environmental management for now and the future, we have the capacity to assist with projects in this area.


Examples of projects that Terri Janke and Company are working on or have worked on in this area include:

  • Dr Terri Janke has been appointed a co-chief author of the 2021 National State of the Environment Report (SoE). This is the first time an Indigenous author has been appointed, strengthening the recognition of Indigenous knowledge and science in the management of the Australian environment. Read more here.

  • Dr Terri Janke spoke about protecting Indigenous Plant Knowledge at the ACT NRM Native Plant Use Forum 2019. See more here.

  • Indigenous Ecological Knowledge and Natural Resources in the Northern Territory: Working under the direction of the National Centre of Indigenous Studies (NCIS) at the Australian National University (ANU), Terri Janke and Company contributed to a project on Indigenous Ecological Knowledge (IEK) and Natural Resource Management in the Northern Territory.
