The Saving our Species (SoS) program aims to secure the future of as many of the 1000 threatened species in New South Wales as possible. It’s a huge and ambitious task and one we can’t do alone. That’s why we work with businesses, government, non-government organisations, educational institutions and the community to make a greater impact and achieve the best outcomes for threatened species.
Partnerships are a large part of our success. They allow us and our partners to align capabilities, resources and efforts to be a greater force for conservation.
We encourage partnerships through investment, funding, research, citizen science, and contributing skills and expertise.
Invest in a Saving our Species project
Opportunities to invest in SoS projects are open to businesses and investors to make a real difference to many threatened species. Projects vary in scale and scope and can be tailored to suit your interests.
We are co-funding projects with conservation groups in New South Wales through a Conservation Co-funding Scheme. Our partners are delivering projects and contributing their own funds, expertise and volunteer/network base to deliver more projects.
We are working with the Environmental Trust to deliver SoS Partnership Grants and Contestable Grants to fund projects for site managed species, landscape-managed species and ecological communities.
To help implement the SoS program, we have partnered with over 10 universities on science and research projects, as well as with non-government organisations and local councils across New South Wales. Volunteering opportunities to protect threatened species exist through our partnerships with conservation groups.
