The EcoGipps (ad)venture

Our work on the ground

The Rendere Trust is associated with EcoGipps, a private land conservation venture established by the Phillipson family in the Avon wilderness region of Victoria.

With environmental experts, the local community, Trust for Nature and other groups, the Phillipsons are restoring four diverse properties covering over 1,000 acres and building links to National Parks and public reserves.

This practical on Country work has revealed insights into the challenges that landholders face in protecting and restoring regional ecosystems; insights that led the Trust to found Land Covenantors Victoria and the BioDiversity Legacy in 2022.
