Biodiversity Conservation Trust

The Biodiversity Conservation Trust (BCT) works with landholders to establish and manage long term conservation areas on private land. We have a number of pathways to achieve this, 
including voluntary agreements, funded agreements and stewardship sites under the Biodiversity Offsets Scheme

The BCT manages more than 2000 private land conservation agreements with landholders throughout NSW covering more than 2.1 million hectares. This is about 2.7% of NSW or about a third of the size of the National Parks estate.  

The BCT provides a unique opportunity to secure long term funding for conservation areas, with funding set aside and managed in trust for all our grants, funded agreements and stewardship sites. To find out more, check out this video, or visit our website:
