Our planet is large, complex and diverse, and global environmental challenges can feel overwhelming. With increasing awareness of species extinction and fears of climate collapse, there are growing calls for everyone to act.
But where do we start?
At Evodia Australia, we are starting in our own backyard. We are starting at grassroots.
The Evodia Grassroots Conservation Fund backs local environmental conservation projects here in Australia that create real and meaningful impact.

WERRIBEE WETLANDS, AUSTRALIAN GUMS PLANTING PROJECT
At our first project we planted over 500 Australian gums in Werribee, Victoria working as part of continued efforts to revegetate the wetlands to enhance biodiversity and habitat complexity in the area. Australian gums can grow up to 15 meters tall and provide shelter and homes to birds and wildlife. In addition, they will assist in removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere through photosynthesis whereby carbon is stored in their leaves, branches, stems, bark and roots.

We look forward to bringing you on this conservation journey with us!
ELWOOD BEACH, COASTAL TEA TREE & SHRUB REGENERATION PROJECT
The detrimental impact of human activity means the environment needs our help to revegetate and regenerate. At our second Evodia Grassroots Conservation Fund project, we planted 1500 native trees in Elwood, Victoria to help rebuild the natural landscape. These native tea trees and shrubs help draw carbon out of the air and down into the soil, improving soil structure and water holding capacity, while restoring habitats for up to 50 coastal birds. This regeneration project will have a long-lasting positive impact on the whole ecosystem.
