Have you ever wondered if land can be protected forever?
Yes, it can be.
There is no greater gesture an individual can make to the conservation of Victoria’s biodiversity than placing a covenant on a property to protect habitat forever.
A conservation covenant permanently protects the land from vegetation clearing or other threatening activities – even after the property changes hands.
Once a covenant is registered, Trust for Nature’s land management stewardship program helps landholders live in harmony with their native habitat and protect key ecological assets.
Trust for Nature does not charge landholders a fee for covenanting because it believes that conservation should be its first priority; however each covenant, including land management, can cost upwards of $29,000.
With over 1,385 covenants protecting more than 63,000 hectares, and a goal to protect a further 50,000 hectares, Trust for Nature is seeking support to strengthen and deliver its land management stewardship program.
