Our challenges

The bush needs to be managed for the long term: achieving real change can take decades.

Australia has the highest rate of mammal extinctions in the world and close to 2,000 plants and animals are on the threatened species list.

Over the last 200+ years, an increase in land clearing and habitat destruction, the introduction of invasive species, and accelerated climate change has pushed many of our native ecosystems to the brink.

All life, including ours, depends on ecosystems. These complex, interconnected environments have evolved over millions of years to support countless diverse and unique species.

Our people are on the ground, immersed in the land.

They control feral animal populations and weeds, and manage Country for fire or flood.

Our expert scientists, volunteers, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander custodians collect data, utilise cutting-edge research and are always looking for new and innovative ways to drive our right-way approach.

Together, we can tackle some of our environment’s most significant threats.
