“Your support through the bushfires and the COVID-19 pandemic has been at once humbling and heart warming.”
“I’ve learnt that when the going gets tough, the Bush Heritage community doesn’t turn away; rather, it leans in.”
“I feel more and more that the environment is fundamental to everything. All life depends on it and if we don’t conserve it, then all life is going to be the poorer.”
