Explore the amazing projects and groups we support including:

 

Conserving Ancient Wonders

We set out on an Overland Track expedition to help the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens. We achieved the urgent goal of mapping and collecting seeds from the montane species of endemic, vulnerable and threatened native conifers.

Tasmanian 24-Hour Wildlife Rescue

Wildcare Bonorong is dedicated to the protection and preservation of native animals through its operation of Tasmania’s 24-hour specialised wildlife hospital and education and awareness programs on wildlife care and safety.

Kangaroo Island Bushfire Appeal

Kangaroo Island’s infrastructure, wildlife and terrain were decimated by bushfires in January 2020 including 96 per cent of world-renowned Flinders Chase National Park - the location of Australian Walking Company’s Kangaroo Island Lodge Walk project. 

WIRES Bushfire Appeal

Small acts of heroism saved many animals lives during the 2020 Australian bushfires. Obi was rescued from one of the most intense blazes to hit New South Wales. The wombat joey suffered burns on his back and two injured legs.

Wildlife Victoria Bushfire Appeal

Wildlife Victoria’s Emergency Response team receives 80,000 requests for help annually and assists over 50,000 animals. The service gives the public somewhere to call every time they find a distressed sick, injured or orphaned native animal.

Carbon Neutral Program

The Carbon Neutral Group has planted over 29 million trees and leads Australia’s largest revegetation project based on carbon capture and biodiversity - The Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor.  

Discovery Ranger Program

Funding park ranger programs in partnership with the Tasmanian Parks and Wildlife Services encourages local understanding and advocacy of national parks. Visitors leave with an appreciation of these wilderness places. 

Tasmanian Aboriginal Guide Training Program

Learning interpretive and educational skills enables aboriginal guide trainees to share knowledge of Tasmania's heritage with visitors. The program was developed with The Aboriginal Land Council of Tasmania and provides a recognised qualification.
