Nature Conservation Trust of NSW
The NCT was established by the NSW government in 2001 to promote nature conservation on private land in the state. The Trust operates independently of government and has a substantial revolving fund enabling it to purchase, covenant and sell to sympathetic buyers high nature conservation properties in the state. Three of South Endeavour’s properties are protected by NCT covenants. Please visit their website.
Queensland Nature Refuges Program
The Nature Refuge program in Queensland is probably the most successful private land conservation program in Australia. Nature Refuges over an extraordinarily large and diverse range of environments in the state. Unfortunately, budget constraints have severely curtailed the program for the time being, but we look forward to it being reinstituted as financial pressures ease. Three of South Endeavour’s reserves are covered by Nature Refuge agreements.
