Bush Heritage Australia is a national non-profit organisation that protects Australia’s unique animals, plants and their habitats.

They do this by acquiring and managing land of outstanding conservation value, or by working in partnership with other landowners. Their vision for 2025 is to protect 1 per cent of Australia.

In 2010 Bush Heritage owns and manages 32 reserves throughout Australia, covering over 947,000 hectares. Bush Heritage reserves are now protecting:

  • more than 242 vegetation communities, including at least 83 that are listed of high conservation value
  • over 2700 plant species, including at least 310 of conservation significance
  • at least 700 bird and animal species, including 197 that are known to be threatened
