Leave a Gift in your Will to conserve Australia's parks and wildlife

Leaving a gift in your Will, also known as a bequest, to the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife is one of the most effective ways you can support long-term conservation.

The Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife (FNPW) is the charity partner of Australia’s national parks. FNPW exists to safeguard natural Australia for future
generations, by protecting, restoring and championing sustainable natural ecosystems in Australia.

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. By including a gift in your Will, you can ensure a future where our national parks and native species will continue to be enjoyed.

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. In its 50-year history, the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife has added over 500,000 hectares of land to Australia’s national parks and protected areas. This land is now protected or all time, this is something your legacy can help to achieve.

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.
