Wildlife Land Trust

Australia is lucky to have some of the most unique and diverse wildlife on the planet, but our native species and the places they call home are disappearing. The Wildlife Land Trust is a national movement to help landholders save our wildlife by conserving, restoring and enhancing their land.

What is the Wildlife Land Trust?

The Wildlife Land Trust is a network of privately-owned wildlife sanctuaries committed to preserving wildlife and habitats. Our members are found across Australia and include farmers, eco-tourism business owners, conservationists and regular landowners who want to support native species on their land. Whether you’re new to private land conservation, registered with an existing land protection scheme or a seasoned conservationist, we’d love to hear from you.

Becoming part of the Wildlife Land Trust is completely free and involves a non- binding letter of agreement to commit to preserving wildlife and their habitats. Joining our program will complement any current or future land protection arrangements.
