A Wild Legacy

Your gift, our promise

Through a gift in your Will, you’re making the decision to help keep Australia forever wild for future generations.     

Support from people like you forms the backbone of Wilderness Australia’s high-impact advocacy for large-scale, long-term change.

You provide the financial security we need to tackle emerging threats to Australia’s wild places; speak up for the restoration of wilderness in damaged but significant areas; and to nurture life by connecting wilderness areas to one another across this wide brown land.

For more than fifty years, Wilderness Australia has been advocating for the defence, legal protection and sustainable management of the wild landscapes you love – places like Kakadu, the Blue Mountains, and the Border Ranges.

Through our historic efforts, 2.1 million hectares have been declared as wilderness across NSW; including many of the intact, wild places bordering Sydney’s urban sprawl, which people who share our love of nature can continue to experience today.

By leaving a gift in your Will to Wilderness Australia, our long and successful history not only becomes a part of your lasting legacy. You’re also making an essential contribution to keeping Australia’s wilderness areas safe, healthy and resilient.
