Wildlife Land Fund Limited (WLFL) is Queensland’s leading community organisation involved in acquiring land to be managed for wildlife and habitat.
WLFL is a public, limited guarantee, non-profit company. Funds come from:
- membership fees.
Contributions (cash or land) donated to the public fund Wildlife Nature Reserve Fund are tax-deductible.
WLFL grew out of a recognition by Wildlife Queensland members in 2001 that land acquisition and management was a strategic and practical way of supporting Queensland’s wildlife and habitat.
Wildlife Queensland launched WLFL in April 2002. Because of these strong links, WLFL members are also required to be members of Wildlife Queensland.
Our Vision is to contribute to an ecologically sustainable future for people and wildlife by conserving Queensland’s natural environment.
The principal means of achieving our Vision are:
- to acquire or bring about the acquisition of land with significant conservation and natural heritage values; and
- to protect and enhance those values through wise and ecologically sustainable management.
WLFL complements the work of other nature conservation organisations by focusing on a network of smaller land parcels protecting threatened wildlife species and habitats. These parcels are generally less than 2000 hectares in size.
The WLFL acquires and manages areas of Queensland with high conservation and management values. The Fund obtains significant parcels of land of less than 2,000 hectares and then intensively manages it to remove weed species, plant native vegetation and optimise the land for wildlife.
The land is available for study and monitoring and to set an example of viable and progressive management that can be emulated in the future by responsible landholders.
