The Foundation is the only organisation in Australia whose philanthropy is an investment in our public estate, our unique species and our cultural heritage – for all to enjoy.
The Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife needs your help to save the endangered Brush-tailed Rock-wallaby from extinction. Brush-tailed Rock-wallaby numbers have declined by up to 97% in the last 130 years. Today, only 3 Brushies survive for every 100 that existed in the 1880s. Your help is urgently needed to reverse this trend.
We are proud to announce that this year, for the first time ever, the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife has been selected as one of the official charities of the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival, 21st September 2014! The Foundation’s CEO, Ms Susanna Bradshaw ran and raised over $5000 in the Sydney Harbour 10K run in July, which is the lead up event to Blackmores events in September. Now it’s your chance to be a force of nature!
Sign up, register, fundraise and you can even run for free!
Each year the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife partners with the Paddy Pallin Foundation and the Royal Zoological Society of New South Wales to offer the Paddy Pallin Science Grants. The Foundation is funding two grants this year for PhD candidates and early career researchers undertaking conservation-based research with tangible outcomes for the management of Australia's marine species and ecosystems. Grants are also on offer for terrestrial and freshwater conservation-based research.
Since 2008, the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife and its partners have funded almost $1 million-worth of grants to private landowners in New South Wales to undertake conservation works on their own properties.

Each month the Foundation sends out a media release promoting our environmental education program Backyard Buddies. We also publicise projects and grant programs that we help fund and administer.
All three levels of government have come together with the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife to protect an area known as Heritage Estates. The high-conservation-value land of Heritage Estates is at Worrowing Heights between Vincentia and Erowal Bay, in the Shoalhaven region on the south coast of New South Wales. Heritage Estates is a 180 hectare “paper” subdivision of approximately 1,200 lots. The project will enable the purchase of as many lots within Heritage Estates as possible for inclusion into Jervis Bay National Park for permanent protection.
