Dr Greet is developing a Traditional Owner-led framework for wetland health assessment and management using Melbourne’s degraded billabongs and riverine wetlands along the urbanised lower Birrarung (Yarra River) as example ecosystems, and is also working with the Wurundjeri people to preserve the last remaining billabongs in Melbourne. Dr Greet’s work brings together Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung Traditional Owners and Indigenous scientists for on-Country workshops, sharing their knowledge and elevating the role of Traditional Owners in water and land management.
