Introducing the Forever Nature Fund

The Forever Nature Fund has been created for the purpose of raising capital to purchase and manage areas of critical habitat, that are prioritised using data driven scientific and environmental assessment tools. The Fund will enable Nature Foundation’s team to act quickly and decisively when a property of high conservation value is available for purchase.

The Problem

Habitat loss and land clearing has caused the extinction of 62 Australian terrestrial species. Between 2000 and 2017 over 7.7 million hectares of land habitat was cleared in Australia (Source: DCCEEW 2021 Australia State of the Environment Report).

The compounding impacts of climate change will cause a further decline in Australia’s biodiversity, with increasing numbers of species and ecological communities being listed as threatened across the country.

Nature and its life-support system is critical for human survival providing food, water, climate regulation and well-being for all society.

Our Vision

To realise a nature-positive future where biodiversity is secure, and our life-support system is thriving forever Nature Foundation aims to purchase land with high biodiversity value to create more critical refuges for Australian wildlife.

We have set an ambitious target to double our impact to 1 million hectares by 2030 - in support of Australia’s commitment to 30 per cent of land and sea protected by 2030.

The Solution
