The Trustees believe that supporting environmental projects is vital to ensure a sustainable future for Australia. Our economy and lifestyle are dependent on healthy water, soil, climate, oceans and biodiversity. Australia’s ecosystem is unique and the vast majority of our native plants and animals are found nowhere else on the planet. We understand that species and ecosystems are declining due to human intervention. Philanthropic support within the environmental sector often involves enabling key environmental and community groups to educate the public on the most pressing issues facing our native fauna, flora, waterways and ecosystems. This may involve funding to enable collaboration between organisations, the training of volunteers, or communication with landholders to explain how their land management has an effect on the environment on a larger scale.
