2022 AWC Limited Edition Calendars: Now Available

As part of AWC’s 30 year celebrations we have created a stunning special edition Annual Calendar for 2022. Featuring a selection of images from AWC’s catalogue, with works from the late Wayne Lawler and AWC photographer Brad Leue, this beautifully presented wall calendar takes you on a pictorial journey through some of AWC’s most remote sanctuaries and up close with some of Australia’s most unique and threatened wildlife.

Celebrating 30 Years of Effective Conservation

On 2 August, 1991AWC Founder Martin Copley AM purchased Karakamia Wildlife Sanctuary in Western Australia. From this modest 268 hectares, AWC has grown into one of the largest private owners and managers of land for conservation in Australia. In celebration of our anniversary, we’re pleased to share our 30th Anniversary Video and Interactive Timeline, detailing the moments which brought us to where we are today.

Where we work

Covering over 6.5 million hectares (16.1 million acres), AWC owns, manages or works in partnership on more land than any other non-government conservation organisation in Australia.

Our 31 locations are situated in key regions including the Kimberley, the Top End, Cape York, Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre and the southwestern forests. It is possible to visit 11 AWC sanctuaries.


Wildlife we protect

Australia is one of the most important nations on Earth for biodiversity. Most of Australia’s wildlife is found nowhere else in the world, making its conservation even more important.

AWC protects some of the nation’s most iconic and endangered wildlife including 72% of native mammal species, 88% of native bird species, 55% of reptile species and 54% of amphibian species.
