Protecting Australia's iconic national parks and gardens

The National Parks Conservation Trust is an independent charity supporting transformational projects that protect Australia’s natural and cultural environment.

Our projects are delivered in and around iconic Commonwealth national parks: Kakadu, Uluru-Kata Tjuta, Booderee, Christmas Island, Pulu Keeling and Norfolk Island National Parks, the Australian National Botanic Gardens, and Australian Marine Parks.

Donors and partners help us to deliver nationally significant conservation projects in Australia to provide a healthier future for our environment and community.

Our partnership with Parks Australia means that the projects we support are identified areas of need informed by on-ground rangers, unique access to on-country knowledge and connections with Indigenous communities, as well as world-class science and the latest research from the field.
