Core Principles

Our strategy is undefined by 4 core principles

Community centred

We place the needs and aspirations of the community at the front and centre of our programs. To ensure their priorities are identified and addressed we work with the community, including women and other marginalised groups to codesign activities. 

Systems thinking

In making sense of the complexity of the world we take an integrated approach by looking at the whole rather than focusing on its parts

Systems thinking is an effective way to explore and develop effective solutions in complex contexts.

NbS Standard

The IUCN Nature-based Solutions Standard provides sound, sciencebased, and clear parameters for defining NbS and a common framework to help benchmark progress.

This framework is critical to increasing the scale and impact of the NbS approach.

Solutions Focus

There is no point repeating the past.  We don’t have time given the scale of challenges we as a planet face.  We focus on learning the lessons, building on what has worked in the past and taking calculated risks to drive outcomes at the scale and speed needed.

TierraMar is an Australia based conservation charity working to build resilient communities and reverse nature loss by helping to unlock transformational change.

Philanthropic / impact investment opportunities

These projects are ready to receive support.

Where we have worked
