Help Grow Woomargama National Park

We have reached our target of 229 hectares raised for Woomargama National Park!

Thank You to all of our supporters and Park Protectors, we could not have accomplished this without you!

Some 25 endangered or vulnerable animal species call Woomargama home… including koalas that were once common, but have now not been sighted for almost three decades! Other native animals we’re in danger of losing if we don’t continue to protect this vital area include the Eastern Pygmy-possum, Squirrel Glider, the Greater Longeared Bat, Southern Bell Frog, Regent Honeyeater, Superb Parrot and the Gang-gang Cockatoo.

In this special appeal, we are asking for your support to purchase 229 hectares of available land on the edge of the beautiful Woomargama National Park, which sits on the border of New South Wales and Victoria on the south-west slopes of the Snowy Mountains, not far from the great Murray River.

Right now, this land can be purchased for $229,000 – or just $1,000 per hectare. So that’s our target for this vital appeal.

To gain a feel for the spectacular beauty of Woomargama, take a look at this recently created video that shows the Park and the land we want to add to its protected status. You’ll also see some of the vast array of wildlife we’re desperate to protect, like grey and red kangaroos, swamp wallabies, quolls, echidnas, wombats, frogs, Carpet Pythons and Powerful Owls.

Of interest, FNPW gained special permission from world renowned music group - the Grammy nominated Fleet Foxes - to use their song ‘Your Protector’ as the soundtrack to this video (re-recorded by Sydney Indie-Folk Group, ‘Lines of Flight’). It’s a perfect fit for this campaign, because by supporting FNPW, you’re the Protector of a vitally important piece of Australia that acts like a major organ in an ecosystem, supporting the whole region as a refuge for plants and animals.
