We feel it is fundamental that as a company we should spread good will. We have taken the initiative to support, garner and help grow these worthy causes.
The causes below are close to our hearts. And we’re not stopping here. We’re always on the lookout for new ways to contribute to a better world, so this list is just the beginning.
The Orangutan Project
The Orangutan Project was established in 1998 by founder and world-renowned orangutan expert, Leif Cocks, as a result of his 25+ year career working with orangutans – including establishing the most successful breeding colony of orangutans in the world. The Orangutan Project was formed with a key mission; to ensure that endangered wild orangutan species would be protected against extinction, and would continue to live in secure populations for generations to come.
Today, The Orangutan Project is a dynamic, fast-growing and successful not-for-profit organisation that supports a wide range of critical projects that address the holistic problem facing remaining fragmented orangutan populations – including fighting deforestation and habitat loss at the highest level.
The Nature Conservancy Australia
A revolution is quietly occurring across outback Australia, far from the eye of most Australians who live in urban areas. Indigenous Australians are returning to their lands to manage them for conservation and improve the lives of their families.
These rangers are supported by a variety of organisations including The Nature Conservancy and, in particular, the Australian Government. In places like Fish River Station, Martu Country and Fitzroy River region, Indigenous Ranger programs are having a profoundly positive effect on people’s lives and achieving long-term environmental, economic and cultural benefits for people and Country.
It’s not only outback Australia where The Nature Conservancy (TNC) is supporting Indigenous people. In the lower Murray-Darling Basin, a consortium led by TNC helped acquire a property named Gayini for its Traditional Owners represented by the Nari Nari Tribal Council. We’re helping conserving precious wildlife and protecting significant cultural heritage over this vast 87,816 hectare property. It neighbours Yanga National Park and the Great Cumbung, creating a much larger protected area that native species can call their home.
