Science & Environment

The Foundation has had a long-standing interest in projects that improve the understanding of our environment, and which take active steps to protect or restore our natural heritage.

Through long term relationships with Zoos Victoria and the University of Melbourne , the Vizard Foundation has been able to make a significant contribution to the protection of the last remaining tract of Yarra Valley forest floor, to agricultural and epidemiological research, and to the collection and distribution of base data on the health of Victorian wildlife populations .

Details of three important initiatives that reflect these interests are available by following these links:
