The Australian Land Conservation Alliance is a charity and public company limited by guarantee.
We represent our members and supporters to grow the impact, capacity and influence of private land conservation to achieve a healthy and resilient Australia.
By 2030, we seek to have grown a diverse, highly capable and resourced sector that protects, stewards and restores Australia’s privately managed land and water to reverse nature loss for a healthy and resilient Australia.
Underpinning our work is our 2030 Strategy: Protecting and stewarding for nature.
During our establishment years, we have been governed by a Board comprised of member representatives that are appointed as Directors.
In early 2022 ALCA farewelled Chair Brendan Foran after five years of strong leadership and welcomed Victoria Marles to the role. Brendan led ALCA through incorporation, establishment, and our growth as a trusted and respected voice for private land conservation. Vic brings depth of experience with private land conservation at a local, national, and international level, and – reflective of our gradual shift to a skill-based board – does not represent a member organisation. Read Brendan’s parting reflections here.
Board subcommittees include Sector Development, Finance Risk and Audit, Policy and Government Relations, and a Nominations Committee. The Board and committees meet regularly providing transparency and collaboration at the most senior levels of the member organisations.

The ALCA 2021-2022 Annual Report: Building and growing our impact paints a clear picture of the impact that we are delivering for our members, the private land conservation sector, the community and for nature.
