Do you remember the excitement of seeing wombats or koalas up close for the first time?

Does a laughing kookaburra or the smell of gum trees after the rain stir up a treasured memory?

Our beautiful landscapes and unique animals are the backdrop to our lives. They’re part of our identity and what it means to be Australian.

But many native plants and animals are fighting for survival.

1 in 5 mammal species and 16% of Australia’s birds are threatened with extinction!

Many vulnerable species find safety and refuge on our reserves and partnership properties. From far north Queensland to the midlands of Tasmania, we're protecting and renewing native habitats to provide much needed refuge and respite for natives.

While we can’t cover all of Australia, we provide safe havens that are essential to stop the decline of many native species.

Most of our operating costs are funded by generous individuals. Donations over $2 are tax-deductible and we can't thank you enough for your support.
