Program Area D: Protection and preservation of Australian flora and fauna

The Ross Trust prioritises applications that demonstrate conservation value with appropriate evidence.

If the proposal is to purchase land; the proposal must demonstrate:

  • High conservation values of the land
  • How the land will be managed in the future to protect those values
  • How the proposed action will contribute to a broader landscape scale approach.

Please note: It is unlikely that applications for environmental education will be successful.
High Priority:

  • Purchase of or regeneration of land of significant conservational value
  • Securing and preserving environmental corridors
  • Increase accessibility of preserved landscapes for the broader public
  • Preserving biodiversity
  • Combined community response
