Bush Heritage is a national non-profit organisation conserving biodiversity in Australia.

We do this by buying and managing land of outstanding conservation value, and working in partnership with other landowners. We help protect native habitats on millions of hectares of the most ecologically important landscapes.

Saving Our Species: a 10-year Science Plan

We use science to inform decisions, learn through research and modelling and to design biological surveys and ecological monitoring. Our Science Plan is the blueprint for increasing our capacity and collaboration across all areas of our science program.

Edgbaston's hidden charms

Cameras out for northern bettongs at Yourka

Staff and volunteers at our Yourka Reserve in far north Queensland teamed up with WWF's Jess Koleck to establish 19 camera traps around Yourka’s most inaccessible ridge lines. Our hopes are high for some northern bettongs, but can't wait to see what else is recorded.

Canberra birdos are back again!

The bird surveys, which are part of our Kosciuszko 2 Coast partnership, have started on their 6th year. A total of 87 species were recorded, which is a high number for the autumn surveys when many of the summer migrants have departed.
