URGENT: Catastrophic mega fires are now tearing through critical habitat in New South Wales and Queensland, putting the lives of people and vulnerable species in danger. Once the fires clear, we urgently need to restore what has been lost.
Our native forests are home to some of the most unique wildlife and plants on Earth. Even without these fires, our precious trees are being destroyed at an unprecedented rate.
The Australian bush has never been under even more pressure. Every year an estimated 500,000 hectares of native forests and woodlands are bulldozed across Australia. This is equivalent to over 200,000 trees per day.
Without your support, and urgent action by all Australians, an estimated 750 million native animals in Australia will die as a result of excessive tree-clearing by 2030.
In New South Wales and Queensland, tree-clearing has become so severe that 42% of koalas disappeared over 20 years alone, and are now at serious risk of becoming extinct in these states.
We must act today to protect the native trees that feed and shelter our precious wildlife, or they could be gone forever in just a matter of decades.
Trees play a critical role in regulating our climate. Fewer trees in any region can reduce local rainfall, contributing to drought and the dry, hot conditions that fuel bushfires.
We all depend on trees for the oxygen we breathe, the water we drink and the rain for our food crops to grow. The future of Australia relies on the survival of healthy forests.
We have a plan to protect and plant two billion trees across Australia by 2030, but we need your support to do it. Read our 10 point plan on how to turn Australia into a reforestation leader.
...and we'll take you on a journey to learn more about how our precious native forests and woodlands sustain life in Australia through exclusive regular updates for monthly adopters. We'll also keep you up to date on how your monthly gift is helping reforest Australia to safeguard our unique wildlife habitat.
Your gift could help plant and nurture trees for koalas to live in, as well as support efforts to expand national protections for existing forests and urge our governments to stop excessive tree-clearing, protecting wildlife for the long term.

Your support is the first step towards protecting and growing the two billion trees Australia needs to restore its forests and provide safe havens for our unique and vulnerable wildlife.
But we can’t do it alone. You’ve played your part, now it’s time for the Government to do theirs.
We’re taking our 10-point Towards Two Billion Trees plan to Canberra to call on the Government to invest $2 billion to save and grow the additional two billion trees needed to move Australia from a deforestation nation to a reforestation nation by 2030.
