Off-reserve Conservation Areas

Together we have reforested 1,700 acres of dry rainforest and woodland in our protected off-reserve conservation area, supporting a complex web of flora and fauna species. This forest forms part of a nature corridor that extends to Mount Royal National Park, a distance of over 50kms. We have a conservation veterinarian on-staff and onsite, and plant new trees every week across various projects and NSW locations with the help of paid and volunteer team members.

Private land holders play a major role in complementing the government reserve system in order to protect our natural habitats and support biodiversity. In addition to drawing down carbon and giving native species a safe home, having core government protected areas linked by private off-reserve areas gives our native species a chance to survive in the longer term by allowing them to follow the food sources and adapt to change.

We're helping save the planet, it's as simple as that. We don't participate in carbon or bio-credit schemes to offset development or emissions.

Protecting Platypus Habitat

Current conservation projects include working with local land owners along the Paterson River in the Hunter Valley (NSW) to stabilise river banks after the March 2021 floods in known platypus habitat areas. Work involves fencing off riparian zones (river bank and surrounds), installation of biodegradable mesh, planting and maintaining native and locally appropriate tree, scrub and ground cover species.

Rehabilitation

We help take care of the little things to make sure they don't get lost in the big picture:

  • native wildlife protection, research and emergency care
  • native seed collection and propagation for endangered local flora
  • rehabilitation of soil microbiology (good bugs) after degradation from over-grazing based on professional Soil Food Web training.

Keen to help too? There's plenty to do!

Most people know our climate is in crisis and want to help, but don't know where to start. There's nothing quick or easy about the scale of change we need to make. It's going to take a lot of people, doing a lot, to make enough of a difference in the time we have. What we have learnt from the last few years of upheaval is that we are more than capable if we have the will. For companies your potential impact may be huge, for some individuals it may be little. That's ok. What's important is that we do everything we can and that we start now.

Sustainable living

In the bathroom

in the kitchen & bathroom

  • ditch the dish sponge for a cloth, loofah or compostable brush
  • try to minimise food waste through careful planning and - if you can - by composting the rest
  • reuse packaging as storage containers eg. glass jars
  • use kitchen soap instead of detergent in a plastic bottle
  • eat less meat and dairy
  • use soap/shampoo/conditioner bars and/or buy products that offer refillable containers
Out & About

out & about

  • bring your own reusable bags
  • bring your own water bottle
  • bring your own coffee cup
  • be conscious of how sustainable your purchases are, including gift selection
  • buy goods in glass and metal over plastic as they have closed loop recycling cycles. Glass is the most environmentally friendly and safe material to use, it contains no harmful chemicals and can be recycled indefinitely!
In the home

    in the home

  • reuse and/or repair things wherever possible
  • switch to slow fashion - buy/swap second hand clothes, buy good quality clothing that lasts and donate old clothes and/or re-use them as rags
  • choose renewable energy sources wherever you get the chance
  • plant herbs/vegies in the garden/balcony/kitchen window
  • if you have a yard, plant trees/shrubs over grass to create habitat and draw down more carbon
  • consider an electric car the next time you are in the market for one
Be a force for good!

Use your purchasing power as a force for good

  • buy from ethical and sustainable brands
  • pick up food from your local farmers market or from a regenerative farm when you can (this supports farms that look after nature)
  • choose items made from recycled materials
  • consider the sustainability of products/services, as well as their packaging & delivery impacts across the full supply chain
  • for general searches, consider using a search engine that plants trees - e.g. ecosia
In your workplace

In your workplace

  • ask whether your employer has an environmental sustainability policy that considers its carbon and broader environmental footprint across the full supply chain
  • if you are a decision maker - consider supporting green charities/NFPs (our favourites are listed below)
  • show your support across personal and business social media channels to shut down the lingering stigma that supporting and endorsing environmental causes paints people as activists #AintNobodyGotTimeForThat anymore.
Show your support

Supporting organisations doing the hard yards

Some of our favourites:

if you can contribute that's awesome! If you can't, simply following them on social media helps show your support and lets them know we all appreciate the important work they do.
