Who we are

The National Parks Conservation Trust (Parks Trust) connects you to information and in-the-field programs that have the potential to reverse the unprecedented threats to Australia’s natural world and cultural heritage.

Projects we support are underpinned by our independent and collaborative relationship with Parks Australia. This enables our work to be informed and delivered by rangers in the field, Indigenous communities, scientists, Traditional Owners, expert specialists and citizen scientists to ensure that complex environmental requirements are accurately identified and responsibly fulfilled.

Our work is focussed on three program areas:

  • Repair locally: Conserve nationally
  • Strong Indigenous culture in the jointly managed parks
  • Ocean discovery and restoration

I invite you to explore the powerful changemaking opportunities that are only accessible through support of our projects.”
