Restoring Australia

We're proud to introduce you to our new initiative Restoring Australia.

Officeworks will plant 2 trees for every 1 used, based on the weight of paper based products customers buy at Officeworks. There are regions across Australia where 85% of the natural landscapes have been lost. These locations were once called home by endangered wildlife.

Together with Greening Australia, we'll be establishing native plants in the landscapes, increasing water quality and revegetating bushland. In turn helping local wildlife flourish.

Restoring Landscapes

We'll be planting seeds and seedlings in the Tasmanian Midlands, the New South Wales Highlands, the Victorian Volcanic Plains and Kangaroo Island and Lake Hamilton in South Australia.

Tasmania - building an ark for unique mammals

Tasmania

Tasmania is the last refuge in Australia for many small mammals, such as the adorable Eastern barred bandicoot, Eastern quoll and Eastern bettong. These were once common across south eastern Australia, but their habitat's now in decline in Tasmania. This project will plant trees and shrubs to improve existing habitat and recreate new habitat for these species, working on private land in partnership with the local farmers and graziers.

NSW - reversing the decline of threatened birds

NSW

The Southern Highlands, south of Sydney, provides habitat for the critically-endangered Regent Honeyeater and Swift Parrot. This project aims to reverse the decline of these threatened species by reestablishing the Regent Honeyeaster and Swift Parrot's migratory habitat across degraded land within the Wollondilly catchment.

Victoria - reviving the habitat for cranes and lizards

VIC

The Victorian Volcanic Plains grassy woodlands between Melbourne and Hamilton in western Victoria have been over cleared. These areas offer potential for reviving the habitat for the Corangamite Water Skink and Brolgas. There is great interest from private landholders around Colac in restoring grassy woodlands on their properties for both biodiversity and stock shelter.

South Australia - restoring the habitat for a host of threatened fauna species

SA Kangaroo Island

Site 1 - Kangaroo Island

The North Cape Revegetation Project on Kangaroo Island, about 100km south west of the Adelaide CBD, will primarily focus on increasing the abundance of the endangered Glossy Black-Cockatoos through the establishment of feeding habitat. This project will restore habitat and mitigate key threatening processes to a host of threatened fauna species on Kangaroo Island, South Australia. Other species that will benefit from on-ground work include the Kangaroo Island Echidna (EPBC endangered), Kangaroo Island Narrow-leaf Mallee, Southern Brown Bandicoot EPBC endangered), Eastern Osprey and White-bellied Sea-eagle.

SA Lake Hamilton

Site 2 - Lake Hamilton

This site is north of Port Lincoln on the Eyre Peninsula will restore habitat to support a host of threatened fauna species and is part of a wider landscape effort to protect and restore areas of Sheoak Grassy Woodland, an ecological community that has recently been nominated for listing under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity (EPBC) Act. The area supports the western-most population of the threatened Diamond Firetail, that was once abundant in this area. Other species that will benefit from on-ground work include the Malleefowl (EPBC endangered), Eastern Osprey and White-bellied Sea-eagle.
