Trust for Nature was established 44 years ago by an act of the Victorian Parliament. The Trust has the power to covenant under the act and has established 1332 covenants. It also owns and manages for conservation 44 reserves around Victoria, including Victoria’s largest freehold property, which was purchased in 2002 and comprises approximately 30,000 hectares. Trust for Nature operates a modest revolving fund for the purchase, protection and sale with covenant of private land. The Trust's activities are guided by a science-based statewide conservation plan, which identifies the key areas for private land protection in Victoria. Victoria has been actively involved in the establishment and ongoing activities of the Australian Land Conservation Alliance over the last 6 years. Victoria is a lawyer by training and lives in Melbourne, Australia.
