From ancient rainforests along the coast to the Mediterranean forests further inland to the edge of the legendary Australian Outback, this large, biologically diverse corner of Australia needs your help. Gondwana Link is home to 10,000 distinct plant and animal species, including kangaroos, emus, dingoes, wallabies and tiny honey possums.

The exceptional plant diversity nurtured by the eucalypt woodlands and open bushland, intermixed with low shrublands and grasslands, is one of the primary reasons for the region’s conservation significance.

A multitude of pressures increasingly threaten Gondwana Link’s rich plant and animal life—2,500 plant species are on the verge of extinction. That’s where your support can help to make a difference.
