Invest in the future - your bequest will make a powerful difference to Victoria's natural environment.
Making your Will is one of the most important things you can do. It not only ensures that your affairs will be settled exactly as you wish, but by making a Bequest to the VNPA your voice will continue to be heard on the issues you believe in.
Because the VNPA is a non-profit, non-government, non-partisan and totally independent organisation, we depend almost solely on the generosity of our members and supporters to help fund our ongoing work.
Your gift, large or small, can make a significant difference to our work, funding projects and campaigns which may not otherwise be possible. Your Bequest also helps to ensure the financial sustainability and long term security of the VNPA.
Victoria's future - a lasting legacy
The creation of a protected area system containing adequate samples of all natural ecosystems is essential for nature conservation in Victoria. However, major gaps still remain in this system.
Several unique habitats are not yet properly protected. This leaves many species of native plants, animals and marine life at risk of extinction. Species including squirrel gliders, barking owls, and leafy sea-dragons rely on bushland and marine areas which are not yet adequately protected.
Victoria's parks and unique ecosystems face threats on a number of fronts, and VNPA is at the forefront of efforts to counter these threats.
With your help, support and future vision, VNPA will always be there to:
Advocate for strong protection and sound management for our parks and natural areas.
Counter inappropriate development proposals and safeguard the integrity of our existing parks.
Establish new national parks to protect adequate samples of all bushland types and natural ecosystems.
Implement measures to protect native vegetation not currently protected in the reserve system, on public and private land across Victoria.
Share our goals for nature conservation and encourage public care and appreciation of our parks and wildlife.
