Environmental Partnerships

Helping preserve, enhance and enjoy our natural environment.

Sustaining our environment

We only have one planet. Minderoo Foundation is investing in programs that encourage the preservation of, and access to, our natural environment.

With WA as our focus, we support programs that improve and sustain a healthy ecosystem, preserve cultural heritage and encourage deeper environmental awareness in the community. We want to ensure we can all continue to enjoy our natural environment now and into the future.

What we facilitate

Minderoo Foundation supports initiatives which investigate threats to our marine environment and supports actions to ensure the health of our reefs and rivers.

Minderoo Foundation values the protection of conservation areas which preserve indigenous flora and fauna especially via the unique knowledge and skills of Indigenous people.
