Tuesday 20 August – 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm

Save our wild places

Conservation funding opportunities in Australia

Australia is a natural gem. Our land and sea are rich in biodiversity and culture, from the tropical savanna of the top end, wide open spaces of the Central Desert to the tall forests and alpine heath of the south. But our environment is under increasing pressure on many fronts. Land clearing, development, invasive species and grazing impact our landscape all of which make it less resilient to the effects of climate change. The good news is, philanthropy is making a difference and there are many more impactful and transformative funding opportunities.
