Moogji Aboriginal Council provide environmental services to a range of agencies including Parks Victoria, DELWP, EGCMA and the private sector.

Our collaborations are focused on looking after country to attain optimal cultural and environmental results. Our varied programs are diverse and cover all aspects of natural resources management, including the conservation of flora and fauna, with the goal of managing pest species on country and restoring and rehabilitating the natural values of the environment.

Moogji is also deeply engaged in controlling invasive species management and weed control. Under the SISP (State-wide Invasive Species Program), Moogji and DEECA collaborate on a variety of projects including invasive weed spraying, walking track maintenance, native tree replanting, feral pig monitoring, and fox baiting.

With members now certified to carry firearms, Moogji is actively taking action to further progress in the invasive species field.


Moogji has received funding from DEECA to restore 10 of our 50 acres from barren farmland back to pre-European (1750) state.

We are working on planting 20,000+ trees, shrubs, grasses, medicinal plants, and bushfoods across 5 zones. Each zone has a different form, allowing multiple layers of eco-systems to be planted and grown. Under the guidance of Elders, culturally significant species will be planted and cultural workshops to be held on the property in the future.

As Bushbank grows we will be able to focus on seed collection, species protection and propagation though planting common, indigenous, and rare or endangered species. This will allow Moogji’s nursery to stock species that can be used in everyday works and to replant after events such as bushfires, working with other organisations such as CMA, DEECA, Landcare groups + more.

Not only will Bushbank have positive effect ecologically increasing carbon sequestration, but we are also hoping to have locally endangered species return and increase habitat, such as the Masked and Sooty Owl, Southern Broen Bandicoot, Long-nosed and Long-footed Potoroo and the Bogong Moth.

We look forward to offering more days where any and every one can come along and join in planting and holding some workshops where we can learn why species are important both culturally and ecologically.

Community will be notified through email, social media, post, and flyers around town.
