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.

They are calling for all Aussies to help by:

  • Giving the gift of a tree to family, friends and colleagues which will be planted in bushfire affected areas around Australia. To plant and maintain one tree costs $10.
  • Forego buying a traditional Christmas tree and instead, donate towards planting a family of trees to be grown in their forever Aussie homes. It might not be in your lounge-room, but these trees will become your legacy and live for generations to come!

Created in partnership with Two Green Threads, the Caring for Carers program has been designed for the volunteer wildlife sector, highly skilled operators that are often put into traumatic and risky situations.

The program includes mental health advice, resources and podcasts specifically tailored to support the welfare of volunteer carers.
