Leaving a living legacy


We’ve only got one Earth. Our most critical investment is the planet we depend upon.

Rendere founders Jim and Heather Phillipson are multi-generational Gippslanders who were raised on the land and, after establishing successful businesses, have dedicated their lives to restoring, reconnecting and protecting properties in East Gippsland (see EcoGipps venture) and beyond. With children David and Kate, the family also support pioneering conservation organisations and leaders through the Rendere Trust.

In 2023, the Phillipsons established BioDiversity Legacy to give more families, landholders and philanthropists the opportunity to participate in private land conservation and enable the transfer of land to future generations.
