Leave a gift in your Will

Thank you for your interest in supporting the next generation of nature lovers by leaving us a gift in your Will.  We are humbled that our community is choosing to leave such an important legacy.  

Leaving a gift in your Will is one of the most meaningful ways to make a lasting impact on our precious forests, oceans, rivers and wildlife. Your legacy will help us continue our work and ensure that those who follow are able to experience the beauty of our state's forests, rivers and precious ecosystems.  

The leading voice for nature in NSW.  

Since our founding in 1955, we’ve been at the centre of the state’s most important conservation battles and notched up countless wins for our wildlife, rivers, forests and oceans.  

When we first began, NSW had no marine parks, National Parks and Wildlife Service, Land and Environment Court or Environment Protection Authority. Land clearing was uncontrolled, rainforests were clear-felled, wildlife was being decimated, and mining companies were even more reckless in the way they destroyed nature than they are today! 

We have been a driving force behind the expansions of our national parks, better bushfire management, new measures to control pollution and deforestation, and strong laws that protect the water we drink and the air we breathe.  

But now more than ever, nature needs a voice.  

Writing your Will is an important and personal process. Below you will find a step-by-step guide with everything you need to know.

If you are ready to start writing your Will, we’ve partnered with online platform Willed. They provide a quick, easy and secure service, legal support and advice. Click here to write your Will via Willed.
