The Great Victoria Desert Biodiversity Trust was established by the Tropicana Joint Venture to deliver lasting net-environmental benefit to the Great Victoria Desert through the provision of funds connected to TJV offsets strategy.

The four principle objectives of the Trust were developed with the WA Department of Parks and Wildlife and the Federal Department of the Environment. These objectives include:

  • Developing a Bioregional Plan for the GVD bioregions 1 and 2 (the Trust Area);
  • Facilitating priority research at the landscape level and into threatened species;
  • Funding on-ground environmental and conservation management at the landscape level, with emphasis on net conservation benefits to threatened species; and
  • Facilitating Indigenous involvement in land management and conservation activities
