Action for Nature with Kuehne+Nagel Australia

We’re delighted to announce our fourth year of partnering for Action for Nature with Kuehne+Nagel Australia, one of the world’s leading logistics providers.

Throughout the year, Conservation Volunteers Australia (CVA) delivers a series of impactful large-scale community events in major regional centres anchored to key national environmental celebration days like World Environment Day, World Wetlands Day, and National Tree Day. At these events, we live and breathe our mission to inspire people to make a difference for nature and encourage people to continue their actions with take-home activities.

Last year, as part of Kuehne+Nagel’s focus on waterways and wetlands, they took part in:

🌱 A sustainable skincare workshop
🌱 Removing thousands of pieces of marine pollution
🌱 Planting at wetland sites
🌱 Removing nearly a thousand metres of invasive weeds, and
🌱 Helping plant 7,600 trees

The Importance of wetlands and mangroves

Current studies suggest that #mangroves and coastal wetlands annually sequester carbon at a rate ten times greater than mature tropical forests. They also store three to five times more carbon per equivalent area than tropical forests!

Australia’s wetlands are thriving sites of carbon storage – accounting for around 10 per cent of the world’s blue carbon ecosystems – but they’re disappearing at a rate three times faster than natural forests.

That’s why it’s so crucial that we continue to partner with organisations such as Kuehne + Nagel to help us pursue this critical work.

Actions for Ocean, Wetlands and Waterways

Kuehne+Nagel will primarily support our Actions for Ocean, Wetlands, and Waterways events during the summer, but will be invited to take part in our year-long calendar of events:

☀️ Summer: Actions for Ocean, Wetlands & Waterways
🍂 Autumn: Actions for Climate
❄️ Winter/Spring: Actions for Biodiversity & Threatened Species

“Conservation Volunteers Australia’s flexible and comprehensive approach assures Kuehne+Nagel Australia of a range of opportunities to act for nature − contributing a measurable impact towards their mission of 1 million people acting for nature by 2026, and supports our goal to act as a force for good for the communities in which we live and work,’ says Francis Murugan, Managing Director, Kuehne+Nagel Australia.

“With clear, measurable impacts for nature, we are delighted to be back on board with Conservation Volunteers Australia.”
