Australian Bush Heritage receives operational funding
Bush Heritage, a non-profit organisation dedicated to protecting Australia's unique animals, plants and their habitats, has recruited a new regional reserve manager thanks to funding from a number of trusts managed by Perpetual.
The organisation, which owns and manages 32 reserves throughout Australia, covering over 947 000 hectares, sees the new role as critical in achieving their immediate and long-term strategic objectives.
CEO Doug Humann, says ‘In addition to acquiring and managing the reserves, part of our work involves building partnerships with other landowners to manage important areas of their land for conservation. This requires a lot of people, many of whom are volunteers’.
‘When we acquire land to manage, it’s very tangible for donors who support us – they can see the outcome of their funding. But the scale of the conservation we do also requires many people and resources. That means we also rely on donors willing to fund behind the scenes work such as capacity building and operational expenses,’ he says.
The managerial role which is based in Canberra, oversees work in all of Bush Heritage’s NSW and Victorian reserves and land partnership projects. As a result, the organisation has been able to create greater engagement with supporters and volunteers, key stakeholder groups, individuals and the media.
‘This is enabling us to expand our reach and conserve more of Australia’s unique biodiversity,’ Humann said.
