We believe in conservation, not only because it protects native plants, birds and animals, but also because it protects us.
After all, you simply can't be healthy in an unhealthy environment.
By acting now to protect nature and prevent extinction, we can secure a better future for all.
Millions of hectares of habitat in Australia today have no permanent protection.
Is this the Australia we want to leave to those that come after us? Without a lasting form of protection, habitat can be degraded or destroyed. Australia has lost 75% of its rainforests and nearly 50% of all forests in the last 200 years, and our high rate of species extinctions is the result. When habitats aren’t managed for conservation, invasive weeds and feral animals can cause huge problems. Many of our native species are found nowhere else on earth, so if we lose them, the world loses them forever.
But permanent protection means habitats and species can survive and thrive, creating a healthier tomorrow – especially for our children and grandchildren.
We work with local people and governments to gain permanent protection for habitats. We grow Australia's National Parks system.
We work with partners including scientists, indigenous and community groups, and individuals to conserve Australia’s unique habitats, species, and cultural heritage.
Every project we fund delivers tangible outcomes for conservation.
