Sign up your land to join the Wildlife Land Trust

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 simply involves a non-binding letter of agreement in relation to your commitment to protect wildlife and habitats. Joining the WLT will not conflict with any of your current arrangements, legal or otherwise, and aims to  complement existing protection measures in cooperation with ongoing government or non-government schemes.

The Benefits of Registering with the Trust

The Wildlife Land 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.

You will receive a regular copy of Wildlife Lands, our dedicated newsletter, where your property will be introduced to the other members as well as being included as a profile on this website. You will also be provided with a Wildlife Land Trust sign to erect on your property if you wish.

We work with other conservation partners, and offer advice on various aspects of managing your sanctuary as well as help to those property owners who would like to “step up” their current non-binding arrangements and seek stronger legal protection.

If you are interested in biodiversity, private land conservation or wildlife then the Wildlife Land Trust can help you to share your stories, connect with other landholders and improve wildlife habitat throughout Australia. 

What Can I Do Now?

If you have an interest in registering your property with the WLT, you can apply online or download a PDF application form (247 kB) that you can send directly to us in Sydney.

If you would like to talk about this invitation directly, please call Evan Quartermain on 1800 333 737 or email him at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

In 2007 Humane Society International launched the Wildlife Land Trust (WLT) Australia in an effort to preserve and protect our vital native habitats and the animals that depend on them, in a network of sanctuaries both throughout the country and internationally. 

Working under the guiding principle of "humane stewardship", the Wildlife Land Trust protects not only vast and impressive landscapes but also the smaller, humbler places that provide for the needs of all wildlife, rare and common species alike. Our members make up a community of wildlife carers, conservation enthusiasts and environmentally responsible landowners around Australia. We encourage our members to practice sustainable and eco-friendly land management whilst preserving the valuable ecosystems and native species on their land. 

Since being initiated by The Humane Society of the United States in 1993, the WLT has grown to protect more than 1.8 million acres of habitat in Australia, Canada, South Africa, USA, Belize, Romania, Jamaica, India and Indonesia. Our goal is to see the protection of one million acres of wildlife habitat across Australia and to expand Wildlife Land Trust sanctuary partnerships throughout Africa, India and south-east Asia.

Member benefits include:

  • Becoming part of a continually growing national and international network of sanctuaries, promoting best conservation practices and protecting wildlife and habitats around the world
  • The facilitation of useful communication between sanctuary members, as well as HSI staff and experienced land managers and native wildlife rehabilitators
  • Help and advice regarding both the legal and ecological integrity of the property should it be required
  • The opportunity to talk about the invaluable work undertaken to protect important wildlife habitats through feature pages on our website and in our regular Wildlife Lands newsletter
  • A Wildlife Land Trust sign to erect on your property

The importance of private land conservation

Australia is fortunate to have one of the richest assemblages of endemic species on the planet, occupying an amazing diversity of habitats.  Yet currently only 11.5% of the Australian landmass has some form of security as a protected area, and as a result we have one of the worst records for mammal extinctions and near extinctions of any developed country.

Protecting and preserving our habitats and ecosystems is essential to the survival of all wildlife, and every acre left unexploited safeguards native animals that desperately need our help to survive. The role of private lands has now become an integral part of the solution, and private landholders with a concern for wildlife and habitat protection are in the unique and important position to make a very real contribution to conservation efforts across the country. Working under the guiding principle of humane stewardship, the Wildlife Land Trust network of national and international sanctuaries on private lands is dedicated to wildlife and habitat protection.

The program is completely voluntary and there are absolutely no costs or legal obligations involved - becoming a member of the WLT will effectively complement any current arrangements landowners already have on their properties, legal or otherwise.  The Directors of HSI Australia and the Wildlife Land Trust invite you to join us in the vital mission to create a global sanctuary system based on the principle of humane stewardship.
