WLFL exists because Queensland's natural heritage and biodiversity are threatened.
WLFL's vision is to contribute to an ecologically sustainable future for people and wildlife by conserving Queensland's natural environment. WLFL recognises that this burden cannot be carried by government alone.
The principal means of achieving WLFL's vision are:
1. to acquire or bring about the acquisition of land
with significant conservation and natural heritage values;
2. to protect and enhance those values through wise and ecologically sustainable management.
WLFL complements the work of other organisations by focussing on a network of smaller land parcels, generally of less than 2000 hectares.
Protect and enhance the Natural Environment in an ecologically sustainable way. We will achieve this by acquiring and managing areas in Queensland of high conservation and heritage value.
The concept of WLFL as a body devoted to conservation of the natural environment was developed and fostered by the Wildlife Preservation Society of Queensland, one of the longest established and most respected conservation organisations in Queensland.
WLFL's property acquisitions are made possible by government and philanthropic grants, donations by individuals, groups and corporations, cash bequests and bequests of specific land. WLFL and its public fund, the "Wildlife Nature Reserve Fund", are Commonwealth registered environmental organisations with tax deductible status.
WLFL seeks to complement these sources of assistance by income generated from ecologically sustainable management in appropriate instances.
WLFL is a non-profit, limited guarantee company. WLFL conducts its operations through a strong network of members, volunteers and experts throughout Queensland and operates under the guidance of a board of volunteer directors.
