Trust for Nature turned 50 in 2022, making it one of the oldest conservation organisations in Victoria. This video gives you a snapshot of what we’ve achieved in that time and why being able to permanently protect freehold land means so much to Victorians, featuring our former CEO Vic Marles and landholders Matt Bowker and Peter Mulherin.
We work with private landholders, government agencies and businesses who, like us, recognise that conserving Victoria’s nature on private land is important.
Trust for Nature developed the conservation covenant program so that landholders could permanently protect native vegetation on their properties.
A conservation covenant is a voluntary, permanent, legally-binding agreement placed on a property’s title to ensure native vegetation is protected forever.
Meet some Victorians who have protected their land with conservation covenants and read about their experiences.
Some regional and rural councils in Victoria offer a rate rebate or concession to covenantors, contact us for more information.
