Acknowledgement of Country
ForestrySA acknowledges the Kaurna, Peramangk, Ngarrindjeri, Ramindjeri and Boandik peoples as the Traditional Custodians of the land of which we care for and manage.
We as an organisation desire healing, restoration, and reconciliation as we walk together into a better future and we wish for our actions to be meaningful and respectful, and are working to build better relationships and understanding with Aboriginal people.
In the spirit of reconciliation and respect, ForestrySA acknowledges the Aboriginal peoples throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community.
We pay our respect to Elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today and into the future.
Reconciliation matters greatly to us, because of who we are and what we do
ForestrySA’s vision for reconciliation is to be an organisation which has deep and meaningful relationships with Aboriginal stakeholders and all Traditional Custodians of the lands which we manage and care for.
Our business operates from our Headquarters in Kuitpo Forest and office in Mount Crawford Forest. We look after land stretching from Pewsey Vale to Delamere in the Mount Lofty Ranges, and Nangwarry to Mount Burr and across to Caroline in the Limestone Coast.
The land we manage therefore intersects with four Aboriginal groups: Peramangk, Kaurna, Ngarrindjeri, Ramindjeri and Boandik people (also known as Buandig or Bunganditj).
