After taking care of loved ones, many people leave gifts in their Wills for the charities and causes they have supported or admired over the years. Leaving a gift in your Will to the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife is one of the most effective ways you can support conservation. Providing a gift for a charity through your Will is also known as a ‘bequest’. Is this something you would like to consider?

Your Lasting Legacy
Thanks to gifts left in the Wills of kind supporters, and in accordance with the wishes of each, the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife has achieved so much.
Thanks to Ivan Saleta 20,000 hectares of bushland and natural areas were gifted to the NSW National Parks & Wildlife Service for conservation and to create the Lachlan Valley State Conservation Area (Hunthawang Precinct) and contributed to the conservation of the endangered Mallefowl, and the vulnerable Superb Parrot, Major Mitchell’s Cockatoo, Brown Treecreeper, and Painted Honeyeater, through the protection of their habitats.
Thanks to Kenneth Hoskins important upgrades were made to Cecil Hoskins Nature reserve including revegetation of degraded habitats, upgraded tracks, installed directional and management signs, and a constructed bird-viewing platform with seating and bird identification information. Kenneth was related to Sir Cecil Hoskins who helped establish the reserve by donating to the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife many years ago.
Thanks to Eulie Sandrey important wetland preservation research in the Mother of Ducks Lagoon Nature Reserve was supported, which is a haven for more than 80 species of birds plus two species of endangered frogs.
Thanks to ‘Kitty’ Catherine Clare White 2,086 hectares of bushland for Morton National Park was purchased for future generations to enjoy.
Thanks to Janet Cosh the East Rim Wildflower Walk was upgraded, a very popular 7 km walk near Fitzroy Falls.
Thank you so much for considering a gift in your Will. Without your support, the work to grow parks and save species could not continue. Your legacy will protect natural Australia for future generations.
