You may be surprised to know only about 20% of Australia is protected as national parks, reserves, Indigenous Protected Areas and state parks. However, more than 62% of Australia is privately owned – clearly the importance of private landowners as protectors of nature is more vital now than ever before.
That’s why we established our Wildlife Land Trust (WLT) program to help private landowners preserve precious native habitat as healthy homes for wildlife. The WLT program comprises a special collective of committed individuals, couples and families who have pledged to create a sanctuary on their properties for Australia’s native species.
Since inception in 2007, the program has grown to more than 900 members, demonstrating the true power of people to stand up for nature and animals by providing vital habitat for threatened species to thrive.
We desperately need your help to grow and enhance the program before it’s too late for our species at risk.
