About Us > Our People > Lily Tait

Hailing from unceded Wadawurrung Country, Lily is deeply passionate about land and waterway care, with a fascination and reverence for natural ecosystems. She finished her Diploma in Conservation and Ecosystem Management at RMIT in 2023 and has since moved to Anglesea for the surf and the heathland. Lily has been continuing her work in bush regeneration in the incredible Otway heath, primarily engaging in weed and pest management, planting and small mammal habitat enhancement along coastal dunes.

Whilst interning at CEC Lily is excited to expand her knowledge of fire use in the landscape, pest animal programs (especially pigs!) and of course continuing to broaden her knowledge of the flora and fauna of the Otways. In addition to her duties as an intern, Lily will also use her time at the CEC to develop a collection of field recordings and bioacoustic mappings to contribute to her artistic practice of found sound collaging.

Lily feels an immense, long-term commitment to returning health to Country in all its forms along the Southern coastline of Victoria and is thrilled to have the opportunity to learn from the incredible conservation practitioners at CEC.
