COVID-19 and Nature Connection report

This report details the results of our COVID-19 and Nature Connection survey. This survey was conducted during the initial lockdown experienced by Australians in the first half of 2020. The purpose of the survey was to understand how people’s relationship with nature had been affected by the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The results provided in this report speak to changes in how much people were able to spend time in nature, as well as changes in how people thought and felt about nature. Recommendations are provided at the end of the report in hopes of directing the efforts of government and NGO’s to facilitate greater, and more equal access to nature within our society.
