Welcome to
Nature Foundation SA


Founded in 1981, Nature Foundation SA is a not-for-profit environmental organisation that works to Save, Protect and Restore South Australia's natural biodiversity. Find out more about the history of Nature Foundation SA.

Nature Foundation SA focuses on three key areas:

  • Land Acquisition and Management
    Purchasing and managing land with significant conservation value and restoring it to its natural state. This land protects threatened species, builds wildlife corridors and provides a base from which scientific studies can be undertaken.
  • Water For Nature
    Nature Foundation SA's Water For Nature initiative conducts environmental watering projects along the River Murray. Nature Foundation SA has partnered with the Commonwealth Environmental Water Office to deliver 4.56 gigalitres of environmental water to more than 35 wetland and floodplain sites.
  • Research, Projects and Education
    Nature Foundation SA funds high-level conservation research projects, to date providing over $2 million of funding to 340 research projects.

Nature Foundation SA is a registered charity and relies upon supporters, members and donors to support its vital work.
