About Us

The Great Eastern Ranges (GER) brings people together to protect, connect and restore healthy landscapes across 3,600km of eastern Australia.

Since 2007, we have been working with our partners to roll out connectivity conservation actions to stem the loss of native wildlife and their habitats, provide integrated natural solutions to address our planetary crises, protect precious resources, and ensure thriving, resilient landscapes and ecosystems for nature and people.

GER provides the big picture connectivity vision that brings people and organisations together to achieve shared conservation goals across public and private land. By building long-term, inclusive partnerships, we create a platform for delivering a coordinated effort at the regional level, while providing the guidance and support needed to link these efforts across multiple sites to create impact at the whole-of-landscape scale.

By working together and supporting connectivity efforts in the highest priority places, the Great Eastern Ranges achieves something far greater than the sum of its parts – securing the future of one of the world’s great natural corridors and the wildlife and communities that live within.

  • Why do we need GER?

    The wildlife, landscapes and ecosystems of eastern Australia are experiencing catastrophic impacts from an increasing
    range of threats including habitat loss, degradation and fragmentation; climate change and biodiversity loss; feral animals and weeds and urban spread. 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 protects, connects and restores habitats and ecosystems across a vast 3,600km swathe of eastern Australia.
