The Victorian Government completed a unique crowdfunding pilot to support threatened species conservation campaigns.

Crowdfunding enables the community to directly invest in causes and projects that they value and are passionate about.

The crowdfunding pilot has offered community groups a unique opportunity to raise funds for additional threatened species actions, and have their fundraising efforts matched by government.
