Protect the forest homes of our Aussie wildlife
Our native forests are home to some of the most unique wildlife and plants on Earth, but the Australian bush has never been under more pressure.
An estimated 500,000 hectares of native forests and woodlands are bulldozed every year. Bushfire seasons can be catastrophic, with the 2019-20 fires alone burning 12.6 million hectares of forest and bushland.
Without urgent action, an estimated 750 million native animals who rely on trees for survival will die by 2030. In New South Wales and Queensland, tree-clearing is so severe, 42% of koalas have disappeared in the last 20 years, meaning they risk extinction in these states. Deforestation also accounts for around 15% of total global emissions, a dangerous contributor to climate change.
Adopting a tree today will help secure the future of billions of animals. It will also curb climate change and leave behind a safer planet for generations to come.
