Vision & purpose

Last updated 08 Aug 2017 

We're a national not-for-profit conservation organisation committed to returning Australia’s bush to good health.

We do this by carefully selecting, buying and then managing land of outstanding conservation value.

We also work in a collaborative, supportive and respectful way with others on their land, including with Aboriginal groups, pastoralists, private land owners, non-government and government organisations.

Our vision is to ensure Country is healthy and protected forever.

Our values

Our values are the principles and beliefs that anchor us to our vision. They're demonstrated in our actions and behaviours every day.


Conservation impact is essential. Our decisions are informed by best available science and evidence. 


We respectfully engage with Traditional Owners and recognise Aboriginal culture, connection to Country and traditional knowledge. Working together and applying two-way knowledge leads to greater understanding and better conservation outcomes.


Collaboration, pragmatism and innovation are essential. We collaborate, listen to and respect Traditional Owners, land and conservation partners, private land owners, pastoralists, conservation organisations, governments and communities, seeking to find solutions together. 


We engage with and work within communities around Australia. People from all walks of life support and encourage us. We recognise and thank our donors, partners, volunteers and staff.


The health and wellbeing of staff and volunteers is a critical factor in our planning and culture.
