Protect plants and animals

Donate to secure land for habitat regeneration & protection

There are some amazing organisations making it possible for anyone to contribute via donations - big or small - to the purchasing of land for protection and regeneration.

Across the world, there are vast amounts of natural landscape that are in urgent need of protection from development, extractive practices and other harmful activities. Fortunately, there are some amazing organisations out there who are making it possible for anyone to contribute via donations - big or small - to the purchasing of land to secure it for conservation, Indigenous-led land management and regeneration.

The acreages chosen for purchase and reclamation have high biodiversity and conservation values and, once purchased, will remain as vital habitats and refuges to safeguard biodiversity, native wildlife and threatened species.

Here are a few options from different parts of the world you can choose from:


Conservation International

Since 1987, Conservation International has worked to spotlight and secure the critical benefits that nature provides to humanity. Combining fieldwork with innovations in science, policy and finance, they have helped protect more than 6 million square kilometres (2.3 million square miles) of land and sea across more than 70 countries.

Every $25 you donate will help protect an entire acre of forest — securing a key asset in the fight against climate change and conserving critical species and the livelihoods of people who depend on these lands.

Rainforest Trust

The Rainforest Trust saves endangered wildlife and protects our planet by creating rainforest reserves through partnerships, community engagement and donor support.
