Nature Glenelg Trust has established the NGT Reserves Fund to enable small contributions to be made by individual donors, within the NGT Foundation.

Every $20 donated will eventually generate a sustainable income stream of $1 per year, forever, to underpin the long-term management of NGT Reserves.

All donations over $2 are fully tax-deductible.

The story of the NGT Foundation

The NGT Foundation is an endowment fund with a long-term goal of generating a reliable, stable source of income to fund effective management of the growing number of NGT Reserves:

  • Eaglehawk Waterhole – SA (2013)
  • Mt Burr Swamp – SA (2016)
  • Kurrawonga – Victoria (2018)
  • Walker Swamp – Victoria (2018)
  • Long Point – Victoria (2018)
  • Hutt Bay Wetland – SA (2019)
  • Green Swamp – Victoria (2020)

Effective management isn’t just about paying rates, fixing fences, maintaining tracks and controlling pests or weeds – as important and real as these ongoing costs are. It is also about activities like supporting research that informs our restoration work, undertaking surveys and monitoring, active recovery of threatened species, and helping to bring back the species we have lost. Our reserves are all strategically located and ideally placed to be at the fore-front of restoration science and practice in south-eastern Australia over the decades ahead.
