Want to lend a hand with post-flood environmental recovery?

We are a national organisation working with communities to re-balance nature for a stronger, more resilient future. For 40 years we’ve helped connect people with important conservation needs to make real and lasting change at scale.

Right now, our focus is on helping people to safely contribute to repairing the environmental damage caused by the recent floods in Queensland and New South Wales. Tonnes of plastic has washed downstream and is threatening marine life. Tens of thousands of trees, planted as habitat for koalas, have been washed away.

We’re mobilising people who want to make a difference. If that’s you, please, click the “learn more” link above.

If you aren’t able to physically help but would like to support us financially, your tax-deductible donation will be put to use to offset the cost of collection and disposal of the plastic pollution washed down to beaches, and to begin the slow process of reinstating the thousands of young trees that have been damaged or washed away from koala habitat we have been planting for many years around Lismore.
