About Us

The Great Eastern Ranges Initiative brings people together to restore and reconnect healthy habitats across 3,600km, from Western Victoria to Far North Queensland.

Since 2007, we have been working with our partners along the length of Australia’s Great Eastern Ranges to stem the loss of native species, provide natural solutions to climate change, protect precious resources and ensure a healthy, resilient landscape for wildlife and people.

Today, we are one of the world’s largest conservation initiatives, delivering strong environmental, health and social outcomes across eastern Australia. 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 within.

  • Why GER

    Faced by an escalating range of threats including habitat loss and degradation, a rapidly expanding population and climate change, the diverse Great Eastern Ranges is a landscape under pressure. The Great Eastern Ranges is one of the few conservation initiatives large enough to respond to these significant environmental challenges at the scale needed to make a measurable difference.

  • Where we work

    The Great Eastern Ranges span a vast 3,600 kilometers stretching from the majestic Grampian Ranges in western Victoria, along the Great Divide and Eastern Escarpment, to the wet tropics and remote Cape York Peninsula in far north Queensland.
