PROJECT SUMMARY

People rely on nature both physically and mentally. The COVID-19 pandemic and its ongoing impacts have shown the strong desire of people to connect with nature and the outdoors. There is a need for leadership to provide people with an experience of nature. This also provides an opportunity to expose people to the need to conserve and protect nature.

To address these needs, the Victorian National Parks Association plans to deliver a ‘bringing nature to you’ series of four inspiring videos to increase the community’s connection to nature and to inspire people to take action to protect nature in these challenging times.

The videos will include segments from our young enthusiastic campaigners to engage the community in the wonders of nature in Victoria – with topics including forests, threatened wildlife and the importance of national parks for protecting biodiversity and providing respite for people.

Funding required to deliver one video is $7000. The funding required to deliver four videos is $28,000.

PROJECT OUTCOMES

The intended outcome of this project is to increase the community’s connection to nature and increase actions taken to protect nature measured by:
• number of views of videos
• number of likes and shares of videos on social media
• number of campaign actions taken to protect nature

Profile of Victorian National Parks Association

Victorian National Parks Association

The Victorian National Parks Association has been at the forefront of nature conservation campaigns for more than 65 years, with outstanding results.

The story of the conservation movement in Victoria is rich in moral courage, passion, and dogged persistence. It’s also the story of years of debates, decades of protests and public meetings, and generations of community action. The Victorian National Parks Association has been at the forefront of nature conservation campaigns for more than 60 years, with outstanding results.

In 1952, when the VNPA was formed, Victoria had just 13 national parks, covering a bit over 100,000 hectares, and no National Parks Act. Today, largely due to our efforts, we now have 45 national parks, 26 state parks, 13 marine national parks, 11 marine sanctuaries and numerous other parks protected under the 1975 National Parks Act.
