About us

Bush Heritage Australia is an independent not-for-profit that buys and manages land, and partners with Aboriginal people to protect our irreplaceable landscapes and our magnificent native species forever.

Bush Heritage steps in where we’re needed most. We respect, listen and learn from working side-by-side with Traditional Owners, and by working in partnerships with pastoralists and other organisations to have the most impact.

Together, we’re returning the bush to good health.

Our values

The way we work is informed by our agreed values:

  • Conservation
    Protected, connected landscapes and waterways for plants, animals and people.
  • Collaboration 
    We collaborate with Traditional Owners, other land owners, scientists, government, organisations and communities for the greatest impact. 
  • Community
    Together we're an active and dedicated mosaic of staff, volunteers, partners, and supporters working for a common goal.
  • Culture
    Respect for diversity, each other and acknowledgement of Traditional Owners’ enduring relationship to this land and waters.
  • Safety
    Healthy people, healthy country
