You can help preserve our natural treasures for future generations

Trust for Nature provides expert advice and stewardship services to more than 1416 landowners who have protected their land forever with voluntary conservation covenants.

We also own and manage more than 36,000 hectares of conservation reserves across Victoria.

Just like the private land protected by conservation covenants, Trust for Nature reserves provide homes for many endangered species, which are increasingly at risk from threats like land clearing and climate change.

It’s all thanks to people like you!

Managing our reserves

Managing 36,000 hectares is the equivalent of 720,000 suburban backyards – and just like your own backyard, there’s always more work to do.

Maintenance alone costs more than $100,000 per year at Neds Corner Station – and this is just one of 43 reserves we manage across Victoria.

We rely on the support of people like you to help us restore and maintain these properties.

The impact of your support

Some of the cost

$500 could fund one day of woody weed control $1,000 could help with a gentle ecological burn to improve grasslands

$2,000 could contribute towards one hectare of direct seeding

$5,000 could contribute towards track maintenance across four reserves in one region for a year

$10,000 could help teach 250 school children about their local plants and animals at our reserves

Costs vary from region to region across Victoria.


How you can help

We need your help to improve the condition and resilience of all our reserves and the covenanted properties we help to protect. As the majority of our reserves have been gifted to Trust for Nature, it is now a priority to ensure funding is adaquate to support their maintenance into the future.

As a not-for-profit organisation, we rely on the support of people like you to help us restore and maintain these unique pieces of habitat.

By making a gift today, you’ll help give threatened species like the Western Pygmy Possum and the Growling Grass Frog a chance of survival – and allow future generations to experience the beauty and wonder of Victoria’s native plants and wildlife.


Each year, 4,000 hectares of Victoria’s precious native vegetation is lost forever

Unless we can protect the habitats they rely on, threatened species like the Western Pygmy Possum
could be lost forever.
