Our aim is to contribute to better conservation of our unique Australian environment and the animals and plants that inhabit it. To support the protection of the National Reserve System, and to encourage its expansion where areas of significant ecological and aesthetic value are not yet included. To support research and education in relation to the conservation of ecosystems, ecological processes, and biodiversity.
The Paddy Pallin Foundation Trust (PPF) was established by the Pallin Family in 2007 with the purpose to aid campaigns dedicated to the protection and enhancement of our unique Australian environment and to support programs to recover threatened species. Some of the identified unique ecosystems are not yet part of the National Reserve System (NRS) and in those instances, the goal is also to support their inclusion in the NRS for better protection. These goals are met by working in tandem with charitable institutions that have values consistent with those of the trust.
To support this work the foundation also runs a series of grant programmes with the goal to support research and education in relation to the conservation of ecosystems, ecological processes, and biodiversity to inform best practice management of the environment backed by research.
