About Us

The Great Eastern Ranges Initiative brings people together to protect, connect and restore healthy habitats over 3,600km from Victoria through to far north Queensland.

Since 2007, we have been working with our partners to stem the loss of native wildlife and their habitats, provide natural solutions to the climate crisis, protect precious resources, and ensure thriving, resilient landscapes and ecosystems for nature and people.

Today, we are one of the world’s largest conservation initiatives, delivering impressive environmental, health, cultural and socio-economic benefits across eastern Australia through our extensive network of local, regional, and national partners.

By working together and supporting efforts in the highest priority places, we can achieve something far greater than the sum of our parts – securing the future of one of the world’s great landscapes and the wildlife and communities that live within.

  • Why GER

    The wildlife, ecosystems and landscapes of eastern Australia face a host of escalating threats, including increasing loss, fragmentation and degradation of habitat; the impacts of feral animal and weeds; a rapidly expanding population and climate change. GER is one of the only conservation initiatives large enough to respond to these significant challenges at the scale needed to make a real impact.

  • Where we work

    The Great Eastern Ranges Initiative protects, connects and restores habitats and ecosystems across a vast 3,600km swathe of our continent from Victoria to far north Queensland.
