Healing our land update report

The Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife (FNPW) is committed to continuing its critical regeneration efforts post bushfires, which left over 12 million hectares burned and over a billion native animals affected. 

Healing our land is FNPW's global emergency appeal to help recover the land affected by the 2019/20 bushfires. Its aim is to restore habitats for threatened species, regenerate national parks with tree plantings and landscape management and purchase land for the purpose of creating new national parks.

The initiative has allowed FNPW to respond immediately by distributing much-needed funds to wildilfe rehabilitation groups across Australia. 

The impact of the Black Summer bushfires continues to affect many wildlife carers across Australia. Many are wondering how they will face another summer with so many fire-affected animals still in care, and so much infrastructure yet to be repaired. In August FNPW opened the National Wildlife Heroes Large Durable Asset Grant round, with $800,000 of funds available for the purchase or construction of wildlife treatment and rehabilitation facilities. This, and other initiatives to follow, will help to support wildlife and their carers on the long road to recovery.

FNPW has also announced a project to plant one million trees in Bushfire Recovery Nurseries around Australia. Trees from the Bushfire Recovery Nurseries will be integral in re-building wildlife habitats and will be planted in national parks across Australia, as well as other public and private lands affected by bushfires.

Given the impact of Australia's devastating bushfires in 2019/20, the Bushfire Recovery Nurseries wll be the first step in significant replanting following the impact of the bushfire on tree species' in gravely affected areas. 

FNPW is raising funds to plant the one million trees over the next five years in Bushfire Recovery Nurseries around Australia to propagate native plants for erosion prevention and restore animal habitats for species including the Glossy Black Cockatoo and Koala. 

FNPW is working with governments and community partners to assess priority areas in NSW, ACT, Victoria and South Australia. Trees from the Bushfire Recovery Nurseries will be planted in national parks across Australia, as well as other public and private lands that have been affected by bushfires.
