Sign up your land to join the Wildlife Land Trust

An invitation to join us. The Wildlife Land Trust is a network of privately-owned wildlife sanctuaries committed to preserving wildlife and habitats. Our members are found across Australia and include farmers, eco-tourism business owners, conservationists and regular landowners who want to support native species on their land. Whether you’re new to private land conservation, registered with an existing land protection scheme or a seasoned conservationist, we’d love to hear from you.

Becoming part of the Wildlife Land Trust is completely free and involves a non-binding letter of agreement to commit to preserving wildlife and their habitats. Joining our program will complement any current land protection arrangements with government and non-government groups.

Why join the Wildlife Land Trust?

The Wildlife Land Trust provides an opportunity to become a part of a growing network of sanctuaries promoting best conservation practices and protecting wildlife and habitats across Australia and the world.

You will receive regular copies of our biannual newsletter, Wildlife Lands, which celebrates WLT sanctuaries and their conservation successes. Your sanctuary will be featured as a profile on our website, and may also feature in our newsletters, social media channels and other publications.

You will also receive a free Wildlife Land Trust property sign to display on your sanctuary.

The Wildlife Land Trust offers access to exclusive conservation grants, wildlife events and expert advice on all conservation issues you may have, as well as support for any local wildlife issues or threats to your property's natural values. We also work with other conservation partners and offer advice on various aspects of managing your sanctuary as well as help to property owners who would like to “step up” their current non-binding arrangements and seek stronger legal protection.

If you are interested in biodiversity, private land conservation or wildlife then the Wildlife Land Trust can help you to share your stories, connect with other landholders and improve wildlife habitat throughout Australia.
