    Where we work

    Covering more than 12.9 million hectares, AWC owns, manages or works in partnership on more land than any other non-government conservation organisation in Australia.

    Our 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 74% of native mammal species, 88% of native bird species, 54% of reptile species and 56% of amphibian species.

    Ecohealth Reports

    AWC’s Ecohealth monitoring program has been developed to measure and report on the status and trend of species, ecological processes and threats at all AWC sanctuaries and partnership projects. At each site a range of ecological indicators are selected, which focus on species at risk of decline, major threatening processes, and a broad range of other metrics for wildlife and vegetation.
