In order to save the last patch of unburnt forest in Manyana on the NSW South Coast, the Foundation for National Parks and Wildlife launched a fundraising campaign after 80 per cent of the Shoalhaven region's national parks were destroyed in the summer fires, "every piece of unburnt habitat is precious".

FNPW awarded one of three initial Bushfire Recovery Nursery grants to Yankalilla Community Nursery, located in South Australia.
This came as part of the first stage of FNPW's mission to plant 1 million trees in Bushfire Recovery Nurseries over the next five years, in partnership with global non-profit, One Tree Planted and French beauty brand, L’OCCITANE.
The nursery will expand to grow more than double its usual amount of seedlings, with volunteers planting a total of 40,000 trees and associated plants to support the recovery of the Mount Lofty to Kangaroo Island Connection, plus help with revegetation on the scorched island.
50 years of growing parks and saving species
Reflecting on the last 50 years, we have collectively achieved so many valuable milestones that have contributed to the overall biodiversity and expansion of our natural environments across Australia. It is our promise that moving forward, we will continue to build on this important work for generations to come. Thank you for your ongoing support.
