Make a Bequest

Making a bequest to Nature Foundation can help ensure that future generations will be able to experience the beauty of South Australia’s natural environment.

A bequest to Nature Foundation can help us conserve South Australian landscapes, flora and fauna for future generations

For 40 years, our strong track record of protecting nature in South Australia is a result of good governance and our commitment to nature science research, which directly underpins all our work for nature conservation.

From Witchelina Nature Reserve in the arid lands, south to the critical ecological communities of the Fleurieu swamplands, and environmental watering along the River Murray, your legacy will help our most vulnerable and endangered native flora and fauna species to survive.

A gift in your will of any size is a simple and powerful way to provide ongoing support to a cause close to your heart.


“I was drawn to the practicality of what Nature Foundation does - buying and conserving land is such an effective and action-based way to make a lasting difference.”
- Steph
“To be able to protect unique species and restore land as Nature Foundation does, is nothing short of a miracle.”
- Marie and Clive
