Trust for Nature
For you, for your family, for future generations, for the world.
Almost 1,000 native species of plants and animals have been found at Neds Corner Station, a 30,000 hectare former sheep station west of Mildura that is owned by Trust for Nature. It is the largest private conservation property in Victoria. Our hope is for Neds to inspire and reinforce the importance of conservation, not only within Victoria but throughout the world.
Who we are
Trust for Nature was established in 1972 with the primary purpose of protecting and restoring nature on private properties. Today, Trust for Nature — in cooperation with private landowners and partners across Victoria — continues to work towards protecting native plants and wildlife for today, tomorrow and forever. Our collaborative approach makes us one of Victoria’s most effective conservation organisations. Our success comes from working hand in hand with many partners including individual land owners, financial donors, governments, local communities, volunteers, and other organisations that share our commitment to Victoria’s environment.
Trust for Nature’s staff are a diverse and skilled team of people. We employ over 50 people across Victoria, who work in science, field work, strategy, fundraising, communications, law, operations, finance, and administration.
A collaborative approach to conservation: we work with government, businesses, not-for-profits and community organisations of all types to achieve shared conservation goals.
Trust for Nature’s conservation properties across Victoria. Trust for Nature currently owns more than 40 conservation properties across Victoria, including the state’s biggest private conservation property, Neds Corner Station.
Protecting land with a conservation covenant is one of the most important things a landholder can do to prevent species extinction and build nature’s resilience in a changing climate.
