What We Do
Conservation covenants are sometimes referred to as conservation agreements or trust agreements; they are essentially a legal mechanism that guarantees the preservation of the habitat in the area where the covenants are applied. It is similar in application to a covenant placed on a heritage listed building to ensure its preservation. Covenants act in perpetuity, meaning they are lodged against the property title forever. This then binds future owners to the preservation of the habitat on the land; subsequent owners continue to maintain and improve the condition of the habitat helping to provide sanctuary for the flora and fauna on that land forever.
We operate a revolving fund to purchase land that is important for biodiversity conservation.
