Give Hope to Australia's Wildlife this Christmas
Despite the challenges of Covid-19, Australian Wildlife Conservancy's team of dedicated field ecologists and land managers are continuing to deliver some of Australia’s most ambitious and important conservation projects.
Please give Australian wildlife something to celebrate this Christmas and New Year by making a donation to Friends of AWC UK to support one of these priority projects.
How your donation helps
Support Australia's largest biodiversity monitoring program
£270 will fund a field ecologist (including equipment and vehicle) for a day. Support AWC's science team to deliver biological surveys across 30 properties. Field staff, students and volunteers will carry out over 160,000 trap nights for mammals, reptiles and frogs, using a combination of box traps, cage traps, pitfalls, funnel traps and camera traps.
Prevent wildfires and save wildlife
£410 will buy 2,500 incendiaries for delivering AWC's award winning fire management program. AWC delivers the world's largest non-government fire management program. Across 7.5 million hectares of northern Australia, this program is reducing wildfire risk by more than 50%, avoiding more than 100,000 tonnes of carbon emissions every year and protecting threatened wildlife like the Purple-crowned Fairywren and Golden Bandicoot.
Harness technology to detect and protect native wildlife
£2,700 will fund the development of cutting-edge image identification technology. Help AWC harness Artificial Intelligence (AI) to consistently and correctly identify animal species, with a high degree of accuracy, and deliver better outcomes for Australia's threatened wildlife.
