Trust for Nature’s vision is that Victoria’s most threatened native plants and wildlife are conserved for future generations. Their mission is to work collaboratively to protect nature on private land forever. Trust for Nature was established in 1972 through the Victorian Conservation Trust Act. Government funding and donations have enable the Trust to purchase properties that are converted to conservation zones administered through the work of on-the-ground regional teams engaged in communities across Victoria. They take practical action to care for and nuture nature.
Anna is the statewide coordinator of the Trust’s regional teams who work with land owners and volunteers to protect and conserve a network of private conservation reserves and covenanted land across Victoria totalling nearly 100,000 hectares. Her role includes working with partners to leverage beneficial biodiversity outcomes at a landscape scale and she spends much of her time travelling to regional Victoria to meet landowners who are passionate about protecting habitat.
Before joining Trust for Nature, Anna held senior roles at the National Trust in Victoria, where she focussed on the conservation of Victoria’s natural, built and cultural heritage.
