Our network of private nature reserves is the cornerstone of Bush Heritage Australia.
In 1991, we purchased two forest blocks to protect them from logging, in what would become a watershed moment for the conservation movement in Australia.
We own properties that have been bought, gifted or bequeathed to us.
How we select land
We think strategically about everything we do. We buy and manage land in areas of high conservation value that are home to nationally significant ecosystems. Reserves are chosen based on our capacity to help protect them in the face of emerging threats, and the degree to which they’re already protected through Australia’s National Reserve System – a combined network of public and privately protected lands.
To best manage our resources we focus on priority landscapes where there are conservation assets of national importance and we can make a significant difference.
