This Christmas, please consider a tax-deductible gift that will go directly towards the ongoing conservation of Australia’s most threatened species. Scroll down to make a direct donation to AWC or donate on behalf of a friend or loved one and send them a special e-Gift Card that will help save Australia’s wildlife. You can support all or part of a project when you donate.
2019 has been an important year for Australian Wildlife Conservancy. With your support, we have reached some significant milestones, including:
Of course, there is still a lot of work to do, so this Christmas season, AWC’s team of dedicated field ecologists and land managers will be hard at work, protecting wildlife in some of Australia’s most remote locations.
Please consider making a tax-deductible gift that offers new hope to Australia’s threatened wildlife this Christmas. You can also choose a personalised AWC e-Gift Card for someone special – and follow our progress implementing your chosen Christmas project via AWC’s website and social media channels.
$20 will purchase four conditioned taste aversion (CTA) baits to train endangered Northern Quolls not to eat cane toads in the Kimberley. AWC is undertaking groundbreaking research to try and save populations of endangered Northern Quolls from extinction.
$50 will protect 50 hectares of precious Kimberley habitat ($1/ha). AWC’s innovative Indigenous partnerships in the Kimberley are securing the future of some of Australia's most endangered wildlife through the delivery of effective land management and conservation science.
$100 will purchase one soft-sided trap to undertake targeted monitoring of threatened species like the endangered Sharman's Rock Wallaby at Mt Zero-Taravale. This information is vital for informing our conservation management of these species.
$300 will purchase one hour of drone time and image analysis to monitor populations of nocturnal wildlife that are hard to detect in large landscapes, like Banded Hare-wallabies and Woylies.
$500 will fund a field ecologist for one day, along with vehicle and equipment costs. In 2019 AWC's science team has delivered more than 270,000 trap nights across 6.5 million hectares. Recognised as Australia's largest field science program, the information gathered helps us to measure our progress and generate better outcomes for Australia's threatened wildlife.
$750 will purchase 2,500 incendiaries for the delivery of AWC’s fire management program across 7.5 million hectares of northern Australia and help save vital habitat for iconic species like the Gouldian Finch and the Golden Bandicoot. Aerial burns will be implemented to break up patches of woodland and reduce the risk of wildfires later in 2020.
$1,000 will pay for the return of one Numbat to Newhaven and help establish a new, wild population of this iconic species in central Australia.
$4,000 will help purchase a GPS collar for feral cat research. Feral cats are the single greatest threat to Australia's wildlife. AWC is undertaking groundbreaking research into feral predator ecology to try and find solutions for controlling feral cats 'beyond the fence.' This research will help protect wildlife including reptiles and ground-dwelling birds such as Malleefowl.
$5,000 will help purchase building supplies to construct a field operations base for AWC's field team in the Pilliga and at Mallee Cliffs National Park. An operations base is essential to successfully deliver this nationally significant project that will see 10 regionally extinct mammals restored to NSW national parks
