Our Vision: Healthy, productive landscapes where people and nature thrive
We are the environmental not-for-profit that thinks bigger than the environment.
We started conserving and restoring Australia’s landscapes in 1982 and we haven’t stopped since. At Greening Australia, we work on major programs that bring life to landscapes and restore balance to the natural environment in significant areas across Australia. Our hundreds of projects demonstrate conservation on a massive scale, covering millions of hectares of land and protecting thousands of native species.
From the warm waters of the Great Barrier Reef to the cool island ark of Tasmania, we’re thinking big to tackle the challenges facing Australia’s unique and diverse landscapes in ways that work for communities, economies and nature.
With teams in 30 locations around the country and more than 150 staff, we’re a proudly independent not-for-profit organisation.
We provide industry leadership through the sharing of knowledge, community ownership and the latest science and innovation. By involving large numbers of people and partners on the ground – from local volunteers to major corporations – we can achieve much more than we could alone.
We are committed to conservation through collaboration, embracing the cultural and traditional values and perspectives of all of our landholders and stakeholders and engaging a culturally rich and diverse workforce that seeks and accepts challenges. Together these are helping us to achieve our goal; to remove the barriers to effective, large-scale conservation.
We’ve called our strategic plan ‘Conservation without Borders’ with good reason.
Our plan is to remove the barriers that can sometimes get in the way of effective large-scale conservation in Australia. We will achieve this through a commitment to conservation through collaboration. Together is better.
