Brookfield Place Sydney has partnered with The Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife (FNPW) to plant and maintain 1,000 trees in support of its goal of planting up to one million trees in bushfire affected areas over the next five years. This forms part of FNPW’s Healing Our Land initiative to continue critical regeneration efforts post bushfires, which left 12 million hectares burnt and over a billion native animals affected.
FNPW, along with global reforestation nonprofit, One Tree Planted, announced the project to plant one million trees in Bushfire Recovery Nurseries around Australia on World Earth Day, 22 April 2020. This is part of FNPW’s commitment to propagate native plants for erosion prevention and restore animal habitats for species, including the Black Glossy Cockatoo and Koala.
Trees from the nurseries will be planted in national parks across Australia, as well as other public and private lands that have been affected by bushfires.
Ian Darbyshire, Chief Executive Officer, Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife said: “It’s thanks to our generous partners that we can respond quickly to the healing of our land post bushfires. These Bushfire Recovery Nurseries will be an important step in our regeneration and we appreciate the support of the wider community to help restore and protect the future of Australia.”
