About Us

Since 2007, the Great Eastern Ranges (GER) has been working with partners to stem the loss of native wildlife and their habitats, provide natural solutions to our climate, biodiversity and wellbeing challenges, and ensure the health and resilience of the ecosystems that sustain us.

GER serves as a backbone organisation for connectivity conservation providing the big-picture vision that brings people together to achieve shared conservation and restoration goals across public and private land. Through our long-term, inclusive partnerships, we provide a platform for local action that meets the unique needs and priorities of each landscape, while providing the resources, capacity, capability and knowledge needed to link these efforts across multiple sites to create impact at the regional and continental scale.

By working together and supporting connectivity efforts in the highest priority places, the Great Eastern Ranges initiative achieves far more than the sum of its parts.

Connectivity conservation is a community-led approach to conservation that brings people together to reverse the impacts of habitat loss, fragmentation and degradation by reconnecting our natural world.

  • Why do we need GER?

    The wildlife, landscapes and natural systems 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 vast scale needed.
