Landcare Australia Partnership
The project aims to help restore natural assets and native habitat
Banrock and Landcare pledge 100,000 new trees - every year
Banrock Station has partnered with Landcare Australia to plant 100,000 native trees and shrubs each year, starting from January 2021.
Supporting biodiversity and animal habitats, clean air and water, while responding to the impacts of a changing climate and deforestation, the new initiative will see thousands of trees and shrubs planted in Australia every year from 2021.
Banrock Station and Landcare Australia also recently partnered to plant 80,500 trees on Banrock Station as part of the Australian Government’s 20 Million Trees Program.
"We have worked closely with Banrock Station for many years on projects in Australia, and this new partnership will help us to continue restoring our valuable natural assets and native habitat by planting hundreds of thousands of trees and shrubs for native animals and local communities." Dr Shane Norrish, CEO Landcare Australia
Investing in healthy landscapes is important for our environment as trees and shrubs cycle the oxygen we breathe, filter the water we drink, provide habitat for iconic and endangered wildlife, and sequester carbon, all while supporting the wellbeing of local communities too.
