Our challenges

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

We're proud to be one of only a handful of conservation organisations using strategic indicators to measure, monitor and report on our conservation impact. This means we can make informed decisions about our management practices.

It also means our supporters can see the real change that their generous donations have made possible.

‘Landscape-scale conservation management’ means we’re focused on returning entire landscapes to good health, rather than just isolated or fenced patches.

This approach acknowledges that ecosystems are complex and interconnected.

Our long-term, landscape-scale approach ensures that the species we’re protecting are more resilient to change – such as drought, wildfires or climate change – because they have more space in which to find shelter, food, water and mates.

Below are just some of the challenging changes facing our natural environment.
