Welcome to Nature Foundation SA
Nature Foundation SA is a not-for-profit wildlife charity which works with and inspires others to save, protect and restore South Australia's natural biodiversity.
The Foundation focuses on three key areas...
- The purchase and management of land with significant conservation value, restoring it to its natural state. This land protects threatened species, builds wildlife corridors and provides a base from which scientific studies can be undertaken.
- The Foundation funds high level conservation research projects on and off its land. To date, providing over $1.8 million worth of funding in its 30 year history.
- Water for Nature is the Foundations most recent initiative and involves conducting environmental watering projects along the Murray Darling River. NFSA is partnering with the Commonwealth Environmental Water Officer to deliver 50 gigalitres of Commonwealth environmental water over the next five years to the River Murray.
These conservation projects come at a price and as a charity the Foundation relies upon supporters, members and donors to carry out its vital work.
Water for Nature – Clark’s Floodplain
Mr David Papps, the Commonwealth Environmental Water Holder, officially launched the first flow of Commonwealth environmental water facilitated through Nature Foundation SA on Monday 18th February adjacent Clark’s Floodplain near Berri. The launch marked the start of a five year, first of its kind, agreement between the Commonwealth Environmental Water Holder and Nature Foundation SA with an allocation of 50 gigalitres of Commonwealth environmental water over 5 years to rehabilitate River Murray floodplains and wetlands in South Australia.
