An invitation to join us. Whether you currently have an agreement with a state government wildlife authority, or your land is designated through a voluntary wildlife refuge scheme of some kind, we would very much like to invite you to join us at the Wildlife Land Trust (WLT), and become part of a global sanctuary system. If you are not yet involved in any form of voluntary or formal program to protect your land, but would like to be, we would be especially glad to hear from you.
Joining the Wildlife Land Trust imparts no legal obligations upon landholders, and we would simply seek a non-binding letter of agreement in relation to your commitment to protect wildlife and habitats. Joining the WLT would not conflict with any of your current arrangements, legal or otherwise, and aims to entirely complement existing protection measures in cooperation with ongoing government or non-government schemes.
The benefits of registering with the Trust
The Trust provides an opportunity to become a part of a continually growing international network of sanctuaries, promoting best conservation practices, and protecting wildlife and habitats around the world.
Your will receive a regular copy of the “Wildlife Lands” newsletter the WLT’s dedicated newsletter, where your property will be introduced to the other members, as well as being included on this website. You will also be provided with a Wildlife Land Trust sign to erect on your property if you wish.
In the future, we will be exploring working with other partners, to offer advice various aspects of managing your sanctuary and offering help to those property owners who would like to “step up” their current non-binding arrangements and seek stronger legal protection.
We would very much like to hear your views on these ideas, which can be sent through the contact details below.
What can I do now?
We very much hope that this new initiative will be attractive to you, enabling you to let the wider-world know what good conservation work you are undertaking for wildlife and habitats in Australia.
