AWC celebrates three decades of effective, science-informed conservation
On 2 August, 2021, marks thirty years since the purchase of Karakamia and the start of the AWC story.
Support from generous donors and innovative partnerships with Indigenous groups, governments and landholders, is seeing AWC effectively deliver conservation across 6.5 million hectares of the country. In these remote and iconic regions AWC conserves hundreds of ecosystems that provide refuge for:
- 74 per cent of mainland Australia’s mammal species
- 88 per cent of native bird species
- 55 per cent of reptile species
- 54 per cent of amphibian species
This year we will release our book ‘Australian Wildlife Conservancy: celebrating the first thirty years’ to mark this special occasion. The book is a collection of stories from the AWC family, past and present, providing a window into AWC’s history and a look to the future.
