Your donation to the Get into nature cause will support people to develop a strong appreciation for nature and a love of, and commitment to, working to benefit the natural environment.
Projects may include:
- Community outdoor nature activities
- Practical hands-on education projects about our environment
Specific programs that Wildcare Tasmania supports:
- GET OUTSIDE Program
Get Outside facilitates nature-based experiences for refugees and new migrants in Tasmania. The program has been ongoing since 2012, and has taken well over 1,000 refugees and migrants on bushwalks, outdoor events and camps. A 2018 independent assessment report found that the program made profound differences to the mental well-being, connections and sense of belonging of participants. We hope that these people will go on to become future carers and ambassadors for Tasmania’s environment.
- WildsC’OOL Program
The WildsC’OOL program engages volunteers, schools and landowners in partnerships for conservation and learning. WILDCARE provides volunteers to support the program, working with schools and with landowners to coordinate practical projects undertaken by students. Your financial support enables this important work to continue to create a better future for our children.
Wildcare Tasmania currently takes a $0 admin fee from donations. We know that a $0 fee is rare and we work hard to maintain this. When interest rates are very low, maintaining a $0 fee becomes challenging and we review the situation ongoing. If you would like to support us, please know that your donation helps. You can also help by joining us as a member.
