Australian Wildlife Conservancy sanctuaries
The AWC estate incorporates 23 sanctuaries around Australia covering more than 3 million hectares (7.4 million acres). There are at least 20 nations around the world which are smaller than the combined AWC sanctuaries. These protect a diversity of ecosystems including tropical savannah, rainforest, majestic wet eucalypt forests, open woodlands, semi-arid grasslands and mangrove lined lagoons. AWC also protects more than 83% of Australia's bird species and more than 67% of our native mammal species.
