Places we protect

In total we protect or help manage 11.3 million hectares through our reserves and partnerships.

Our priority landscapes

Shaded areas on the map indicate our priority landscapes – areas we've identified as in need of increased protection to safeguard nationally significant ecosystems. They've been chosen for their conservation value, our capacity to help protect them, and the degree to which they're already protected through Australia’s National Reserve System – a combined network of public and privately protected lands.

Our reserves

Bush Heritage owns 37 reserves covering 1.2 million hectares. These are protected forever. We look after this country to ensure it remains healthy and natural ecosystems are thriving.

Aboriginal partnerships

We work in partnership with 11 Aboriginal groups on their land and sea country, and 14 Traditional Owner groups on our reserves to deliver conservation and socio-economic outcomes. Our total partnerships cover a management area of 10.1 million hectares.

Regional partnerships

We collaborate with private landholders, communities, and other conservation groups across Australia that share our vision of ‘healthy Country, protected forever’. By engaging with and within communities, we achieve much more than we could working alone.
