Plant a Tree for Me!

  • YEAR: 2015
  • STATE: National
  • FOCUS AREAS: Growing Parks/Healing our Land/SDG 15: Life on Land

Plant a Tree for Me! is an initiative of the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife launched in 2015 with an ambitious conservation program of activities to help protect and grow natural habitat which is key to the survival of our endangered species.

There is a huge diversity of species across Australia, however over the past 200 years more than 75% of our native vegetation has been destroyed or degraded. This has seriously impacted native animals and they need our help.

Our current goal is to help grow and plant 1 million trees in disaster affected areas by 2025. The black summer bushfires and more recently severe floods continue to prevent our land and native animals from recovering.

Help us reach our goal and donate to our campaign.


FNPW support

This project is ongoing and is being funded through generous donations from FNPW supporters and partners across Australia and beyond.

Project overview

You can help restore habitat for endangered species impacted by the Black Summer bushfires, floods and environmental degrading.

By planting trees and helping rainforests, woodlands and eucalypt forests regrow, we’re helping to build and protect native habitat for our wildlife. When you give to Plant a Tree for Me! you’ll support important projects to restore habitats all around Australia – planting local native trees, caring for them, and ensuring they’re safe where they are into the future.

Our approach is to invest in best practice conservation management and scientific based projects to ensure that the habitats we restore are viable ecosystems that provide high quality habitat essential to our native species survival.

As a national organisation, we focus our efforts on supporting, engaging and connecting with communities, project partners and key conservation organisations and the people who comprise them, to the tools, knowledge, and funding to become active and devoted stewards of our incredible natural & cultural heritage.

By supporting scientific based projects and important research programs we are able to better understand and manage native species conservation. These projects increase our knowledge about threats to species distribution, behaviours, and population numbers so that initiatives and on-ground projects can be undertaken to ensure their survival into the future.

Plant a tree for me! is a practical and effective way for Australians to invest in conservation. The initiative helps to grow native trees, increase biodiversity and provide vital habitat for our precious wildlife.

Thanks to generous donations from people like you, we can continue to restore habitats across Australia.

A donation of just $10 will plant and maintain one tree. All donations, big and small, will make a huge difference.

This Plant a Tree For Me project aims to revegetate additional Allocasuarina Verticulata (She-Oak) at Blowhole Beach for food of Black Glossy Cockatoos as apart of project to provide food for when these birds cross again to the mainland.

Bushfire Recovery Small Grants

As part of FNPW’s Healing our Land initiative, our focus is to repair the damage inflicted on our country following devastating bushfire events. With over 12 million hectares of national park and bushland affected in the 2020 fires and an estimated one billion native animals losing their lives, the initiative will focus on the regeneration and recovery of Australia’s flora and fauna.
