WHO WE ARE
Bush Heritage is a non-profit conservation organisation dedicated to protecting Australia’s unique animals, plants and their habitats.
Enabled by the generosity of our supporters, we own and manage private conservation reserves throughout Australia, covering around a million hectares.
Our reserves are managed in a similar way to National Parks – the land is legally protected, with the intention of safeguarding it forever.
We also build partnerships with other landowners to support conservation management on their properties. Through these innovative conservation partnerships, along with the more than 35 reserves we directly own, we’re now protecting more than 6 million hectares of the most ecologically important and threatened landscapes across Australia.
Australia is an amazing place, filled with plants and animals unlike any other found on earth. I have had the privilege of walking through some beautiful landscapes, and the uniquely Australian plants and animals make everyday life in Australia astounding.
Unfortunately, many of these plant and animal species are under extreme pressure. They face habitat loss from mining and other development, death from feral animals and invasive plants, and they are being lost to pollution, climate change, and run-ins with people. If we do not make a conscious effort to preserve these incredible Aussie species, they will be lost. Many species are threatened or near extinction. Let’s try to keep that from happening by giving them a fighting chance through conservation.
As a new Australian citizen, I feel that it is my duty to help.
