PLEDGE your support to protect Australia’s threatened and endangered species. We can have a huge impact on the future of our environment if we work together NOW.
There are currently 463 animals and 1,336 plants on the threatened species list in Australia. Last year alone, 41 more species were added to this alarmingly growing list.
In the past decade, three species of Australian animals have suffered extinction. At the current rate, researchers estimate a further 17 Australian animals will be extinct by 2038. We simply cannot let this happen.
For many of our native animals, every day is a fight for survival. Their homes are under threat from invasive animal and plant species, excessive habitat destruction and the extremes of global heating. Without our efforts to fight for them, they will disappear forever.
Bush Heritage Australia gives our native animals and plants a chance to survive and flourish by working across 11.3 million hectares of land across Australia. We buy and manage ecologically important land for conservation and partner with Aboriginal groups and other landowners (such as farmers), to help them to do the same.
Bush Heritage believes that extinction is a choice, and that by working together we can solve big problems.
We appreciate your support in any way you choose. A regular gift will enable us to do more of the groundwork that our nature needs, while helping raise awareness will mean the critical issues facing our nation’s wildlife will be on the hearts and minds of all Australians.
These are areas that Bush Heritage has identified as requiring increased protection in order to safeguard nationally significant ecosystems and the species that call them home. They have been chosen for their conservation value, our capacity to help protect them, and the degree to which they are already protected through Australia’s National Reserve System – a combined network of publicly and privately-protected lands.
