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

PROGRESS OF THIS PROJECT
This project is ongoing and has been funded by generous donations and partnerships since 2015.
Currently our projects are focused on the restoration of habitats impacted by the 2019/20 Black Summer bushfires and 2022 floods.
DONATE TO PLANT A TREE
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.
