Protecting and restoring natural ecosystems

Become a member & make a difference to the local environment

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.

Need something to keep you occupied through lockdown? Well we have a challenge for you! We may not be able to explore together right now, but that doesn’t mean we can’t all share in what makes our local patches of bush so special. 💎

That’s why we are encouraging all of our followers to get out and explore your local areas of bushland or even your own backyards and share your findings with us using the hashtag #5kFinds 🌱

Maybe you’ve come across a particularly vibrant flower whilst on your daily walk, discovered a new wetland in your area you didn’t know about or are lucky enough to have some wild visitors to your backyard?! However you’re getting your nature fix at the moment we want to see! ☺️

So get exploring and get sharing! 🔍
