Help us maintain Noosa as a special, globally-recognised UNESCO biosphere reserve.

The Noosa Biosphere Reserve is a living example of how people can live in harmony with nature while maintaining sustainable development, thriving local businesses, world-class education facilities and healthy, vibrant communities. We have Big Ideas and we need your support to make them happen. Your donation will help us continue our work to protect, preserve and enhance the Noosa Biosphere Reserve. You can make a regular or one-off donation by either Becoming a Friend of the Noosa Biosphere to support our work across projects or donate directly to a current campaign to help seed-fund a specific cause.

Where your donation goes

Our priority is the long-term sustainable management of the Noosa Biosphere Reserve. Since 2015, we’ve invested more than $1 million into local projects that help us achieve UNESCO’s Man and the Biosphere Programme goals across our four priority areas – Marine, Land, Wildlife and People & Economy.

These projects have seen us partner with some of the world’s leading research organisations and universities including WWF, The Nature Conservancy, The Thomas Foundation, University of the Sunshine Coast, University of Queensland and Griffith University providing direct benefit back into Noosa.

All donations over $2 are tax deductible. The Noosa Biosphere Reserve Foundation Ltd is a not-for-profit organisation registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission and holds Deductible Gift Recipient status. ABN: 12 733 644 586
