So what exactly is CLM?

Conservation and Land Management is the industry that deals with the preservation of natural environments, the rehabilitation and overall management of land that has degraded due to human activities. CLM integrates the conservation of land, flora and fauna, often playing an important role in the operating of national parks, council reserves, Indigenous protected areas and other Commonwealth owned lands as well as involvement in Landcare works on private land.
