Protecting and restoring natural ecosystems

Become a member because Aussie animals need homes too!

The Habitat Restoration Fund (HRF) was created in 2006, by a group of people who wanted to take a more hands on approach to preserving their local environment.

The fund was established on Boonwurrung and Bunurong land. We pay our respects to elders past and present and extend our respect to indigenous people who are present today.

HRF is unique to other environmental protection groups because:

  • Our focus is the on-ground implementation of projects.
  • We organise the long term maintenance and legal protection of projects up-front to ensure long lasting positive impacts.
  • We work on private as well as public land.
  • We employ professional environmental contractors to work alongside volunteers.
  • We provide opportunities for disadvantaged people to get involved in meaningful activities.
  • We are non-political.
