It’s Time To

Protect Our

Native Forests


Across victoria’s central highlands

They aren’t just unique places to visit, our native forests create a healthy, liveable environment for every Victorian.

Just one hour from Melbourne’s suburbs, our native forests of the Central Highlands are producing our water, storing vast amounts of carbon, helping to stabilise our climate and are home to Victoria’s iconic plants and animals.

But these special places are facing serious harm and collapse, and they urgently need your help to protect them.

We all have the power to protect our native forests, and we’re doing something about it.

Incorporated in 2008, Warburton Environment is a not for profit, non government community organisation dedicated to protecting the forests of the Central Highlands of Victoria.
