Australian Wildlife Conservancy
Australian Wildlife Conservancy (AWC) was established more than 10 years ago because Australia has the worst mammal extinction rate in the world and a very high proportion of our surviving animals and plants (over 1,700 species) are listed as threatened with extinction.
“Business as usual” for conservation in Australia will mean additional extinctions. AWC is therefore developing and implementing a new model for conservation to reverse the decline in our wildlife.
Our strategy is simple:
- Establish sanctuaries by acquiring land and through partnerships with landholders; and
- Implement practical land management – feral animal control and fire management – informed by good science.
