Christmas Trees for Bushfire Recovery:
Give the gift of planting and maintaining a tree this Christmas for just $10
This Christmas, the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife (FNPW), the charity partner of Australia’s National Parks, is calling for all Aussies to support its mission of planting one million trees in bushfire affected areas around Australia.
Earlier this month, FNPW, in conjunction with international non-profit, One Tree Planted and French beauty brand, L’OCCITANE launched three bushfire recovery nurseries in NSW, ACT and SA to start the planting of native trees which will help recover habitats for critically affected species, including the Koala and Glossy Black Cockatoo.
Hawkesbury nursery trees to help restore fire-affected bushland
Hawkesbury Community Nursery at Mulgrave has been chosen as one of three recipients of a Bushfire Recovery Nursery grant, made available by the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife [FNPW], the charity partner of Australia's National Parks.
The grant will go to expanding the Mulgrave nursery's capacity to 45,000 trees, which will serve as a major step in supporting the recovery of Wollemi National Park and the Blue Mountains World Heritage Area.
It is estimated that 80 per cent of the area was destroyed by the fires.
50 years of growing parks and saving species
Reflecting on the last 50 years, we have collectively achieved so many valuable milestones that have contributed to the overall biodiversity and expansion of our natural environments across Australia. It is our promise that moving forward, we will continue to build on this important work for generations to come. Thank you for your ongoing support.
