Whether you’re a private landowner, a business or organisation, we can assist with many services, from purchasing and planning, biodiversity mapping and monitoring, to planting and weed management.
We work with private landowners, government agencies and businesses who, like us, recognise that conserving Victoria’s unique biodiversity on private land is important.
Trust for Nature developed the conservation covenant program so that landowners could permanently protect native vegetation, including habitat for plants and wildlife, on their own properties. Our covenanting program is established under the Victorian Conservation Trust Act 1972.
A conservation covenant is a permanent, legally-binding agreement placed on a property’s title to ensure native vegetation on the property is protected forever. This agreement is voluntary and negotiated between Trust for Nature and each individual landowner.
In this video you meet people who have protected their land with conservation covenants. You can also read about landholders’ experiences.
Some regional and rural councils in Victoria offer a rate rebate or concession to covenantors find out more
