Bush Heritage Australia is an independent not-for-profit that buys and manages land and partners with Aboriginal people, to conserve magnificent landscapes and irreplaceable native species forever.
They are national leaders in landscape-scale conservation with a focus on returning the bush to good health. They do this primarily through two proven approaches:
- Carefully selecting, purchasing and managing land of ecological significance and working with Aboriginal people, neighbours, researchers and others; and
- Working in partnership with others, including Aboriginal people and pastoralists, to support them in looking after their country for conservation outcomes.
They focus their work in their priority landscapes, which are selected based on national biodiversity priorities and opportunities for strategic partnerships. Working with partners means they can have a greater impact: creating healthier, more resilient ecosystems.
Since the purchase of their first reserve in the Liffey Valley of Tasmania almost 30 years ago, they’ve expanded both our approach and our reach. Today, Bush Heritage protects or helps manage a total area of 11.3 million hectares (28 million acres), 1.2 million hectares (3 million acres) through our 37 conservation reserves and 10.1 million (25 million acres) through partnerships.
Their reserves hold an estimated 43.1 million tonnes of carbon stock. Together with their partners’ country, they are home to at least 6359 native plants and animals, of which 243 are on Australia’s threatened species list, including 71 endangered species.
