This is a new page as of May 2009. We are gradually adding links to quality websites which are not wildlife rescue sites, but which share a commitment to the conservation and protection of wildlife.

IFAW begins its fourth decade of operation with more than 200 experienced campaigners, legal and political experts, and internationally acclaimed scientists working from offices in 15 countries around the world.

With 1.2 million supporters worldwide it is possible for IFAW to engage communities, government leaders, and like-minded organizations around the world and achieve lasting solutions to pressing animal welfare and conservation challenges - solutions that benefit both animals and people.

The Wildlife Preservation Society of Australia is an all volunteer registered, non-for-profit conservation organisation holding tax exemption status with the Australian Tax Office.  The Society was formed in Sydney in May 1909 and is totally committed to the preservation and protection of Australia’s unique native fauna and flora in all its forms through national environmental education programs, community involvement, political lobbying and advocacy, as well as practical hands-on wildlife conservation projects.  Our Society is very proud to be celebrating a Centenary of wildlife conservation throughout 2009 with a series of special events.

Australian Wildlife Conservancy

AWC acquires land, and works with other landholders, to establish sanctuaries for the conservation of threatened wildlife and ecosystems. AWC now owns 20 sanctuaries covering 2.5 million ha (6.2 million acres) in places such as north Queensland, the Kimberley, western New South Wales, Northern Territory and the forests of south western Australia.

Wildlife Friendly Fencing

The wildlife friendly fencing project is raising awareness of the impact of barbed wire and netting on Australian wildlife, especially bats, birds and gliders, and developing guidelines for good practice.  Each year thousands of these animals face a cruel death or permanent injuries from entanglement. Many of the survivors are euthanased as they are unreleasable. Barbed wire is both an animal welfare and conservation issue, as it is now being recognised as a threatening process in the draft / recovery plans for a number of species.
