For 60 years, WWF has worked to help people and nature thrive.

As the world’s leading conservation organization, WWF works in nearly 100 countries. At every level, we collaborate with people around the world to develop and deliver innovative solutions that protect communities, wildlife, and the places in which they live.

World Land Trust (WLT) is an international conservation charity that protects the world’s most biologically significant and threatened habitats acre by acre.

Through a network of partner organisations around the world, WLT funds the creation of reserves and provides permanent protection for habitats and wildlife. Partnerships are developed with established and highly respected local organisations who engage support and commitment among the local community.

The Jane Goodall Institute: Dr. Jane Goodall went into the forest to study the remarkable lives of chimpanzees—and she came out of the forest to save them. When she discovered that the survival of their species was threatened by habitat destruction and illegal trafficking, she developed a breakthrough approach to species conservation that improves the lives of people, animals and the environment by honoring their connectedness to each other. In 1977, she founded the Jane Goodall Institute to ensure that her vision and life’s work continue to mobilize the collective power of individual action to save the natural world we all share. Your support helps us advance Jane’s vision and work around the world as a force of compassion for all living things.

International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) is a membership Union composed of both government and civil society organisations. It harnesses the experience, resources and reach of its more than 1,400 Member organisations and the input of more than 18,000 experts. This diversity and vast expertise makes IUCN the global authority on the status of the natural world and the measures needed to safeguard it.

Founded in the U.S. through grassroots action in 1951, The Nature Conservancy has grown to become one of the most effective and wide-reaching environmental organizations in the world. Thanks to more than a million members and the dedicated efforts of our diverse staff and over 400 scientists, we impact conservation in 72 countries and territories: 38 by direct conservation impact and 34 through partners.

Our mission is to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends. To achieve this, we must boldly address the biodiversity and climate crises over the next decade. By maximizing our ability to affect change between now and 2030, we can shape a brighter future for people and our planet.

Since 1987, Conservation International has worked to spotlight and secure the critical benefits that nature provides to humanity.

Combining fieldwork with innovations in science, policy and finance, we’ve helped protect more than 6 million square kilometers (2.3 million square miles) of land and sea across more than 70 countries.

Wildlife Conservation Society's (WCS's) goal is to conserve the world's largest wild places in 14 priority regions, home to more than 50% of the world's biodiversity.

This is outlined in our 2020 strategy, which positions WCS to maintain its historic focus on the protection of species while developing an ambitious plan to engage with a rapidly changing world.

The challenges are greater than ever, but with the focus, dedication, and passion of a committed staff—combined with a unique mixture of field, zoo, and aquarium expertise—WCS will continue to set the bar for science, conservation action, and education that has driven our success in protecting wildlife and wild places for over a century. We hold ourselves to the highest standards, adhering to core values of respect, accountability and transparency, innovation, diversity and inclusion, collaboration, and integrity.

Friends of the Earth (FOE) International: We are the world’s largest grassroots environmental network, uniting 73 national member groups and some 5,000 local activist groups on every continent. With over 2 million members and supporters around the world, we campaign on today’s most urgent environmental and social issues. We challenge the current model of economic and corporate globalization, and promote solutions that will help to create environmentally sustainable and socially just societies.

Environmental Defense Fund (EDF): We began in 1967, as a scrappy group of scientists and a lawyer on Long Island, New York, fighting to save osprey from the toxic pesticide DDT. Using scientific evidence, our founders got DDT banned nationwide.

Today, we’re one of the world's leading environmental organizations. In the U.S., Fortune magazine called our board one of the country's most influential nonprofit boards.

And science still guides everything we do.

Citizen Science, Community Engagement. Since its founding in 1971, Earthwatch has been taking action to address global change through a time-tested model of citizen science and community engagement. By pairing citizen science volunteers from all sectors of society with researchers around the world, Earthwatch teams have helped to safeguard critical habitats, conserve biodiversity, and promote the sustainable use of natural resources. 

Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE): To engage and empower people through education in collaboration with our members and partners worldwide — The Mission of FEE


We believe in the power of change and that the best gift we can give to future generations, the most valuable legacy we can leave behind us, is to empower students to be leaders for sustainability and positive change, by enhancing global education. Our educational programmes, Eco-Schools, LEAF and Young Reporters for the Environment, use a solution-based approach to empower young people to create a more environmentally conscious world. Our Green Key and Blue Flag initiatives are known across the world for their promotion of sustainable business practices and the protection of our valuable natural resources. 

With members in 77 countries we are the world’s largest environmental education organisation and through our five programmes we strive to make a difference every day. Recognised by UNESCO and UNEP as a world-leader within the fields of Environmental Education and Education for Sustainable Development, our strength comes from our members who share our conviction and execute our programmes on a daily basis.

Wetlands International are the global not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the conservation and restoration of wetlands. Our vision is a world where wetlands are treasured and nurtured for their beauty, the life they support and the resources they provide.

Oceana seeks to make our oceans more biodiverse and abundant by winning policy victories in the countries that govern much of the world's marine life.

Oceana, founded in 2001, is the largest international advocacy organization focused solely on ocean conservation. Our offices around the world work together to win strategic, directed campaigns that achieve measurable outcomes that will help make our oceans more bio diverse and abundant.

10 Ways You Can Help Save the Oceans.

Greenpeace uses non-violent creative action to pave the way towards a greener, more peaceful world, and to confront the systems that threaten our environment.

To defend, conserve and protect our ocean.  Sea Shepherd is an international, non-profit marine conservation organization that engages in direct action campaigns to defend wildlife and conserve and protect the world’s oceans from illegal exploitation and environmental destruction.

International Rivers protects rivers and defends the rights of communities that depend on them.

We seek a world where healthy rivers and the rights of local river communities are valued and protected. We envision a world where water and energy needs are met without degrading nature or increasing poverty, and where people have the right to participate in decisions that affect their lives.

The Rainforest Alliance is an international non-profit organization working at the intersection of business, agriculture, and forests to make responsible business the new normal. We are building an alliance to protect forests, improve the livelihoods of farmers and forest communities, promote their human rights, and help them mitigate and adapt to the climate crisis.

At RFUK, we tackle deforestation locally and globally. Locally, we help forest communities to gain land rights, challenge logging companies, manage their forests and protect their environment. Globally, we campaign to influence national and international laws to protect rainforests and their inhabitants.  We believe that the best way to protect the rainforest is through empowering indigenous peoples to defend their ancestral lands.

Our approach differs from that of other organisations in that it is committed to both human rights and environmental protection. Instead of purchasing land or conserving forests purely for their biodiversity value, RFUK promotes the establishment of community rights over rainforest lands, tackling the root of the problems related to deforestation and paving the way for local people to benefit fairly from the use and protection of forest resources.

Since our inception, the Rainforest Foundation has helped indigenous communities and local communities to protect more than 12 million hectares of rainforest.

Rainforest Action Network (RAN): Rainforest Action Network preserves forests, protects the climate and upholds human rights by challenging corporate power and systemic injustice through frontline partnerships and strategic campaigns.

The African Conservation Foundation works to protect Africa’s endangered wildlife and their habitats, by tackling the root causes of biodiversity loss. Founded in 1999, ACF was the first organisation focusing on partnering with and building the capacity of grassroots conservation efforts in the region.

Nature Foundation is an apolitical not-for-profit foundation that invests in conserving, restoring and protecting South Australian landscapes, flora and fauna to ensure their survival.

Tasmanian Land Conservancy: Our vision is for Tasmania to be a global leader in nature conservation. Tasmania is home to a unique array of plants and wildlife, many of which are found nowhere else in the world. While Tasmania is well known for its large and iconic national parks and reserves, a number of the species that call Tasmania home are still under threat of disappearing forever. Our remarkable plants and wildlife rely on the critical habitat that only occurs on private land for survival.

South Endeavour Trust was established in 2007 as an independent, not for profit, charitable trust with the sole purpose of contributing to nature conservation in Australia.


South Endeavour currently owns and manages ten conservation reserves. To date we have focused on three areas of great conservation need, each of which has extraordinarily diverse biodiversity values.

The World Parrot Trust (WPT) has brought together global wildlife conservation and welfare specialists to direct and put into action effective programs to protect parrots. Our approach is rooted in science, decades of first hand experience in the field, and a deep knowledge of companion parrot husbandry and care.

Kyloring is the Noongar name for the Western Ground Parrot. It is one of the rarest parrots in the world with a population estimated to be less than 150 birds. Found only in a remote Western Australian national park, the last wild population came close to being wiped by devastating bushfires. The Friends of the Western Ground Parrot are a community group which formed in Albany in 2003, at a time when it had become very obvious that the Western Ground Parrot was in serious decline. In 2009 we became incorporated and have since become a registered charity listed on the Register of Environmental Organisations.

The main aim of our organisation is to raise awareness about the threat of extinction facing the parrots. We raise funds for recovery projects and lobby for government support. We are also a member of the South Coast Threatened Birds Recovery Team and assist the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions in its recovery actions.

Artemis Nature Fund: Artemis station was once a strong-hold for Golden-shouldered Parrots. However, the population has crashed to about 50 birds. All the evidence suggests Artemis’ parrots will disappear completely if we don’t act now. In order to save Golden-shouldered Parrots on Artemis, we will restore 5,000 hectares of habitat to an open structure using a series of management actions. These actions have been developed in consultation with Thaypan and Olkola Traditional Owners, through the Golden-shouldered Parrot Recovery Team.

Scientists, bird conservationists, teachers, students, park rangers, hunters, bird stewards, birdwatchers, citizen scientists, young-environmentalists and climate activists, wildlife artists and photographers, authors and publishers work together to protect shorebirds and their habitats all over the world. We aim to transform outsiders into insiders through community education, programs and events.

Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Network (WHSRN): In the mid-1980s, scientists from around the Americas were already documenting serious population declines in shorebirds. Recognizing that these birds were in trouble prompted the scientific community to take action and develop the framework for a network of key sites to protect shorebirds and their habitats: the Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Network (WHSRN). WHSRN is a science-based, partnership-driven, conservation initiative for protecting the ecological integrity of critical habitats for shorebirds throughout the Americas.

We also encourage people to become involved in care of all animals through a number of ways including becoming a carer in your local area, assisting with rescue centres in your local area, checking roadkill kangaroos for orphans and to protect other wildlife (such as eagles and dingoes) from being hit by vehicles by removing the dead animal from the road.

Wildlife Rescue


Save the Tarkine/Tarkanya: ‘takayna / Tarkine remains today a rare gem of natural intactness in a world where the destruction of wild nature is rampant and accelerating. It should also be one of the easiest in the world to protect. Comprising just seven percent of Tasmania, the Tarkine contains the nation’s largest temperate rainforest, a galaxy of its rare and endangered wildlife and some of the richest Aboriginal heritage in the hemisphere. The latter has been inscribed on the list of National Heritage. The cleanest air in the world, as measured by the nearby UN monitoring station, blows across the Tarkine’s shores.’ 

Over 90% of the natural values in takayna / Tarkine are largely intact. But these values are under threat from acid mine drainage, deforestation and contamination of waterways by proposed new mines. Ancient rainforests are being flattened by logging and wildlife-rich ancient eucalyptus forests clearfelled for woodchips. Contentiously sourced wood is supplied to the controversial Borneo logging giant Ta Ann. After logging, the area is burnt with a napalm-like substance that aggravates climate change and pollutes the air.  

Support the Bob Brown Foundation in their actions, which include:

  • Coordinating frontline protests against logging, mining and off-road vehicle destruction. 

  • Organising thousands of citizens in street marches, demonstrations and public meetings across Tasmania and around Australia.

  • Curating Australia’s biggest environmental arts project, Art for takayna.

  • takayna Trail, an ultra-marathon and half-marathon held annually in takayna.

  • Organising BioBlitz and other citizen science events in takayna.

Alternatively send an email to Minister Ley to stop a 140 hectare toxic tailing dam being built in the Tarkine: click here.

Save Toondah Harbour:  Toondah Harbour, just south-east of Brisbane, is part of the Moreton Bay Marine Park and a Ramsar wetland of international importance that provides important habitat for: 

  • Threatened migratory shorebirds 

  • Dugongs 

  • Whales and dolphins 

  • Sea Turtles 

  • Koalas 

The area is used by the Critically Endangered Eastern Curlews to feed and fatten up to prepare for their 10,000 km trip to their breeding grounds in the Arctic Circle.  

The Coalition government has decided that a controversial apartment complex and marina (by Walker Corporation) proposed for Queensland’s Moreton Bay should proceed to the next stage of the assessment process, despite legal advice from the federal attorney general’s department warning it was unacceptable because of the risk it posed to internationally listed wetlands.

The proposal cannot go ahead unless it gets approval from both the Federal and Queensland State governments and we will need as many voices as possible to speak up for our birds. 

You can help BirdLife Australia grow the campaign by: 


Whether you are a local in Cleveland, a concerned Queenslander or an interstate bird lover who wants to help protect important bird habitat this campaign needs your voice over the next 12 months. 

It will be a big year, and together, we are going to Save Toondah Harbour! 

Stop unnecessary road clearing by Main Roads WA  that will destroy 54 hectares of  old-growth eucalypt, native orchids, priority classified plants such as the purple beaufortia (featured), hollows that birds and other wildlife rely on to survive, food sources that cannot be easily replaced.

Current road works by Main Roads WA taking place between the Jingaling Brook Road and Lovers Lane on Toodyay Road have caused environmental destruction not anticipated by the Toodyay and surrounding community. This level of destruction of beautiful rural scenery and native bush that contributes to the value of Toodyay as a destination is neither necessary or justified in order to improve road safety. If you were shocked by these recent road works, future plans see even larger clearing footprints with realignments that only marginally improve the safety of Toodyay road.
