I am sharing this experience with you now to let you know that 1900 Footprints is not just a genuine effort to raise awareness for conservation in Australia, but it also represents a step in my own personal journey.

Please reload

There are over 1900 species in danger of extinction in Australia. Tristan is walking from Adelaide to Melbourne and around Tasmania to raise money and awareness for conservation activities to protect these species.

100% of donations received will Proudly Support:

BioR will use funds raised by 1900 Footprints to restore and maintain a species-rich conservation block near Monarto, South Australia

 Funds for Wollangarra will sponsor 

disadvantaged young people to attend life-changing outdoor courses in the Victorian mountains.
