Protect Threatened Species
The Nature Conservation Trust (NCT) works alongside rural landholders across NSW helping them to protect Australian endangered species - both plant and animal. Private land, in many cases, represents the last stronghold of NSW’s endangered species. Their very survival depends on managing this land effectively, through conservation. A detailed ecological survey of the land that will be protected with a covenant identifies all the flora and fauna within the area to be protected and highlights the presence of any endangered species or other species of conservation concern. Then we can begin to monitor the wildlife and continue to do so for the life of the covenant. Partnerships with landowners put a new value on private land conservation and aid in the protection of endangered species.
Our staff members are dedicated to uncovering and protecting the amazing array of animals that survive – sometimes secretively – on rural landholdings.
Some of Australia's most endangered native plants now survive only on private land. Protecting plant biodiversity has therefore never been more important.
