Description of the charities activities and outcomes
The Trust collaborates with Parks Australia to bring unique on-ground knowledge and shared connections with Indigenous communities, as well as access to world-leading science and research that underpins meaningful and sustained impact. This includes working with rangers, Indigenous communities, scientists, Traditional Owners, expert specialists and citizen scientists to identify, research and deliver projects that answer on-site needs for responsible, sustainable conservation.

In this, the first year of public operation of the National Parks Conservation Trust, the Trust has worked with staff on different parks to think outside the box and identify projects that require external funding in order to happen. These are dedicated people who are passionate about protecting and enhancing the natural and cultural values in their parks. Together, we are creating opportunities for the public to get involved in this important work.
