  • Habitat clearing is the greatest threat to biodiversity in NSW.

  • Habitat clearing rates in NSW have tripled over the past decade and grew rapidly following coalition reforms in 2016.

  • NSW is now losing 50 million trees, or almost 100 000 ha per annum to land clearing. That’s 260 ha cleared per day in NSW.

  • Habitat clearing is responsible for 10% of Australia's C02 Emissions (40 million tonnes per year), equivalent to the emissions produced by every household in Sydney.

  • Eastern Australia has been named as one of the 24 global deforestation hotspots - making us the only developed nation on the list, and NSW has been ranked as the worst offender in Australia.

  • Around 70% of native forest in Australia has already been converted into farmland.

The Tree Projects

The Tree Projects

The Tree Projects is an environmental outreach organisation which aims to educate people about trees and forests and why it's important to protect them. We are a small organisation that has a big impact. We encourage people to experience and learn about forests, and aim to foster a sense of awe and wonder about our natural world. We feel that it is important for people to connect to forests, as people will only advocate for things that they care about.

The Orangutan Project

The Orangutan Project

The Orangutan Project has a holistic approach to conservation.

Saving the orangutan also saves Critically Endangered Sumatran tigersCritically Endangered Sumatran elephants and many other endangered species. It also saves the forest and supports local and indigenous communities.
