We accept donations from any country. You can choose to donate in AUD, USD, CAD, NZD, GBP, and EUR.

If you are in the UK, you also have the option of donating directly to our sister charity, The Thin Green Line Foundation UK, here. Thin Green Line Founder, Sean Willmore, helped establish TGL-UK in 2019 and remains a director on the boards of both organisations. Our teams work collaboratively to ensure support is provided in a timely manner and that our services are not duplicated.
The majority of our work is funded by individual donors, who contribute through donations, bequests, community fundraisers, and by purchasing our merchandise. We also receive grants and donations from private funds and foundations. You can read about our annual income here.
If you’re interested in lending a hand and supporting our hard-working team, we’d love to hear from you! We’re based on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula but have opportunities for remote work. Please drop us a line with your details and what skills you can contribute.

At Thin Green Line, our vision is a thriving planet where every ranger has the resources they need to protect our natural world. To achieve this, we have developed a Five-Year Strategy which outlines our key objectives between 2021-2025. If you’d like to learn more about our strategic objectives, you can access our Strategy here.
In recent years, Thin Green Line has extended our support programs to Indigenous rangers working within Australia. In 2017, we supported nine Indigenous rangers from the Western Desert to travel to Kenya to work alongside and share learning with Maasai rangers. See this experience in the documentary “Ranger to Ranger”, screened across Australia and aired on SBS and SBS on Demand.
We have worked closely with Indigenous managed organisations, such as the Kimberley Land Council and Indigenous Desert Alliance, to support rangers working in Indigenous Protected Areas and Native Title lands within Western Australia. We are committed to strengthening and promoting Indigenous voices within land management in Australia, and globally, and are actively supporting the Indigenous Desert Alliance to participate in international ranger exchanges and workshops from 2023-2027.
Within Australia, Thin Green Line also works alongside a variety of ranger organisations to build awareness of the vital work rangers are responsible for globally and within our region. A number of Australian ranger associations have taken part in fundraising initiatives to support their international colleagues; this includes the Tasmanian Ranger Relay, as featured in Australian Geographic.
