Working towards a world in which people and nature flourish together

We exist to strengthen the health of communities and ecosystems for mutual benefit, across Australia. Through our work, we’re building a more harmonious and helpful relationship between people and nature.

People tell us that they want to play their part to re-balance nature, but they don’t know where to start. So, for almost 40 years we’ve been working to give people that opportunity through hands on volunteering. 

Now, we’re growing our work to empower anyone across Australia to take action for nature. 

You can read abut our recent work and our new directions in our latest “Deep Roots, Strong Future” report.
