Our Mission / Objective

To protect, promote and restore wilderness and natural processes across Australia for the ongoing evolution and survival of life on Earth.

Our Services

Our goal is to protect Victoria’s forest ecosystems – and the many endangered species that live within them.  We aim to to do this through the creation of the Great Forest National Park in the Central Highlands, and The Emerald Link in East Gippsland.

  • promote the use of recycled and plantation fibres over precious native forests;
  • organise and train a grassroots national movement for lasting change;
  • educate Australians on the benefits of intact ecosystems;
