Banksia award for partnership

Trust for Nature proudly accompanied Greening Australia as Bank Australia accepted the Banksia Large Business Award for our collective work on the Bank Australia Conservation Reserve.

Bank Australia made headlines when it became the first bank to purchase its own conservation reserve in Victoria’s Wimmera region. 

This initiative is still a world-first and has been secured in perpetuity with a Trust for Nature conservation covenant over the 927 hectare reserve, which ensures the land is protected forever, even after it changes hands. Ten years’ worth of work have gone into protecting the plants and animals on the reserve, like the majestic yet endangered Red-tailed Black Cockatoo.

Congratulations to the whole team!
