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 HRF is unique to other Environmental interest groups because:-
- Our Focus is the on-ground implementation of projects.
- We organise the long term maintenance and legal protection of each project up-front to ensure we have long lasting positive impact;
- 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.
The Habitat Restoration Fund was created to Enhance natural ecosystems on both private and public land.
To reconnect fragmented ecosystems by creating revegetation corridors.
To educate the general community – in particular, schoolchildren – about the importance of preserving habitat for wildlife.
To repair habitat for endangered flora and fauna via weed control, revegetation, ect.
Repair wetland, creeks, and river ecosystems.
To form an active and cooperative and supportive relationship between Community Groups, Governments and environmental stakeholders.
To involve the general community in meaningful ‘hands-on’ projects.
Wildlife on the Brink . . .
Australia has one of the worst extinction rates in the world’
More than 100 species of flora and fauna have been driven to extinction since European settlement; some species being proclaimed extinct as early as the 1850’s. Over 160 years later, hundreds of species are at immediate risk of extinction now. Land-clearing, feral animals, weeds and pollution continue to destroy their habitat.
Having one inhabited large areas of Australia, these animals are only found in a handful of isolated locations. Once the habitat ingone, dependant species of wildlife go with it.
-just 0.1% of the original native grassland habitat is left in Australia. 70% of wetlands are already gone, and most of what is left is severely degraded by weeds and agricultural practices. This has decimated water-dependent birds, fish and frogs across the country.
Habitat Restoration Fund is a non-profit organisation dedicated to undertaking on-ground projects that ensure the survival of our wildlife.
