We work with the best and brightest to address Australia’s most pressing conservation challenges

We’re not about making a profit or taking sides. What we’ve done is adopt what’s known as the 4Cs philosophy. The 4Cs stand for Conservation, Culture, Community and Commerce.

This philosophy ensures the conservation outcomes we achieve are for the long-term: they can’t be overturned by a change in government or fail when external funding is withdrawn. They don’t rely on one hero but instead skill up entire communities who can identify what needs doing and are able to do it.

Why does attentiveness to nature matter? In a very fundamental sense, we are what we pay attention to. Paying heed to beauty, grace, and everyday miracles promotes a sense of possibility and coherence that runs deeper and truer than the often illusory commercial, social "realities" advanced by mainstream contemporary culture. ... Our attention is precious, and what we choose to focus it on has enormous consequences. What we choose to look at, and to listen to--these choices change the world. As Thich Nhat Hanh has pointed out, we become the bad television programs that we watch. A society that expends its energies tracking the latest doings of the celebrity couple is fundamentally distinct from one that watches for the first arriving spring migrant birds, or takes a weekend to check out insects in a mountain stream, or looks inside flowers to admire the marvelous ingenuities involved in pollination. The former tends to drag culture down to its lowest commonalities; the latter can lift us up in a sense of unity with all life.
