Water for Nature
Together with South Australian communities, we deliver projects to improve the health of River Murray wetlands and floodplains.

Healthy wetlands are vitally important for the environment, economy, culture and society as a whole.
Water for Nature recognises that the wetlands, river red gum and black box woodlands, lignum swamps and samphire floodplains provide habitats for many species of threatened and vulnerable birds, fish, frogs and invertebrates.
As well as providing habitat for flora and fauna, healthy wetland environments provide better water quality for human consumption, agricultural use and opportunities for recreation and tourism.
In today’s regulated river system, many hundreds of wetlands do not receive the natural floods they once did and need programs like Water For Nature to help them recover from years of drought and return them to a natural wetting and drying cycle.
You can help us to deliver more water for the environment to save our threatened and vulnerable species by making a donation.
We are grateful for every donation, because each one will help conserve South Australia's biodiversity. You can also join our community of regular givers and your much-needed regular support means we can invest in longer-term solutions, reduce overheads and run our vital programs with more certainty.
Donate regularly on a monthly basis, or once-off using the button below, or contact Nature Foundation on 08 8340 2880 or [email protected].
Minimum donation is $2. All donations are tax deductible.
