Habitat Sanctuaries

Habitat Sanctuaries is a non for profit environmental conservation organisation which protects endangered species (such as the Koala) from extinction, through habitat replanting, food, tree and vegetation planting. Habitat Sanctuaries purchase land to create Sanctuaries that are free from political footballing and real carbon capture or sequester. Habitat Sanctuaries mission is simple: to protect native and endangered wildlife and preserve biodiversity through the purchase of land as habitat sanctuaries. 

Currently the social enterprise has achieved:

17,000 trees seeded

17,000 animals in their care

411 secured hectares in NSW

History of Habitat Sanctuaries 

The people who make up Habitat Sanctuaries are passionate about conserving wildlife and this passion stemmed when they realised national parks are declining rapidly in number and size and that gas fracking, mining and development will continue to reduce protected habitat for endangered species- so in 2011 Habitat Sanctuaries decided to create more, protect more and through sanctuaries creations for long term protection of Koalas and other native wildlife. In the process reversing the impact of climate change.


1 billion tree planting campaign. 

Bausele is planting 19,300 trees over two years which equates to 26.4 trees per day. The 1 billion tree campaign - yes that’s right, Habitat Sanctuaries are balancing the scales back in favour of the environment and away from climate change by committing to buy, seed and plant 1 billion trees, that’s only 40 x trees for each Aussie. The goal is to plant 1 billion trees in 10 years. Each tree is a food and habitat tree for a Koala and or native animal...join Habitat Sanctuaries In providing sanctuary lands / get your workplace involved.

Businesses that are eco minded and have an eco heart can get involved and show your customers that you care. Habitat Sanctuaries can assure business involved get a outstanding social story and their customers love helping them offset their CO2 footprint passively by doing what they do best "their business."

As part of the 1 billion trees campaign, Habitat Sanctuaries are creating a children’s book series at Habitat. In the book series the koala is a superhero that solves environmental problems for other animals (like water pollution for the platypus) as “Super Blue” with his human friends (kids).
