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.
