WSPA - Help stop stray dogs being slaughtered like vermin.In some countries, dog control officers randomly shoot animals in the crowded city streets. If not killed instantly, they’re thrown into a truck and left slowly to die. Around the world, there’s an estimated 400 million stray dogs which represents an animal welfare crisis on a huge scale. War, famine, poor sanitation and poverty all combine to create a huge global crisis. WSPA has a holistic approach to reducing the numbers of stray dogs by providing practical solutions to help prevent uncontrolled breeding. Their mobile clinics, supplied with necessary equipment and medical supplies, enables vets to visit rural communities where proper care for dogs would not otherwise be available. And over the long term WSPA is educating people about responsible pet ownership, sterilising and caring for their animals. Please help save stray dogs and other animals from cruelty today.

WSPA - Help stop the gruesome sport of bear baiting. A terrified and traumatised bear is dragged into a ring by a rope that has been crudely forced through her highly sensitive muzzle with a needle. Filled with fear, she knows what is about to happen to her but, tied to a post in the ground, all she can do is struggle and cry out in pain. Suddenly a pair of dogs are set upon her, attacking her face and snout. Desperate to stop the pain she opens her mouth to bite and swipes at the dogs with her paws, all in vain. Her teeth have been removed and claws blunted – so her attempts to defend herself are useless. The dogs too are often injured in the fights as the desperate bears struggle to defend themselves. It’s a fight that no animal can win. Please help save bears and other animals from cruelty.

Wildlife Preservation Society of Queensland - Click here 
 
We are the oldest, largest and most respected wildlife-focused conservation group in the State of Queensland. Founded in 1962 by Judith Wright, Brian Clouston, David Fleay and Kathleen MacArthur, the Society is a community-based, non-profit organisation consisting of 24 branches throughout the State, committed to an ecologically sustainable future for people and wildlife.

 

WHAT WE DO…

Wildlife and its habitat

The Society practices a 'hands on' approach to conservation: tree planting, fauna and flora surveys, radio tracking, restoring wildlife habitats and protecting remnant rainforest. The Society supports biologists and other researchers in studying threatened species such as bilbies, fig parrots, false water rats and frogs. We also give advice on how to attract wildlife to your backyard, and how to deal with wildlife conflicts in your home or garden.

Wildlife and the community

The Society consults with local councils, business and representative groups. We provide education for communities, organise field trips, surveys, social events and species monitoring. The Society represents the community's interests at local, state and national levels. We access, influence and consult on statewide legislation, strategies and planning decisions, as well as commenting on national wildlife permits.

Protecting the environment

Our campaigns cover diverse topics ranging from reduction in vegetation clearing, preserving and restoring endangered mahogany glider and bilby habitats, to arresting the decline of dugong populations. We are also involved in campaigning against dam proposals and sand and oil shale mining projects; and in promoting the environmental importance of national and marine parks.
OUR AIMS…

Preserve…
the flora and fauna of Australia by all lawful means.
Educate…
the community in an understanding of the principles of conservation and preservation of the natural environment.
Discourage…
by all legal means, the possible destruction, exploitation and unnecessary development of any part of the natural environment.
Encourage…
rational land use and proper land planning of existing and future development, and the use of the natural environment and its management.

  • AWC became a public charitable organisation in 2001, although its origins can be traced back to the initial purchase of land by Martin Copley, AWC’s founder, in 1991.
  • AWC now owns 15 sanctuaries covering 1.1 million ha (2.7 million acres) around Australia (click here to view a map).
  • AWC sanctuaries protect at least:
    • 250 ecosystems
    • 100 threatened ecosystems
    • 135 threatened animal species.
  • AWC has approximately 65 staff, with around 80% of these based in the field.
  • AWC’s operational budget is approximately AU$6 million.
  • 90% of AWC’s overall expenditure is on conservation programs, with less than 10% incurred on fundraising and administration combined (2004/05 figures).

The inaugural Steve Irwin Day, held on 15 November, was celebrated around the globe and represented the many things that Steve was passionate about - family, wildlife and fun.

The Wildlife Warrior team would like to particularly thank everybody who participated in our Khaki Day and Backyard Campout fundraising appeals that were held in conjunction with this special event.  Feedback from participants - like those from the University of the Sunshine Coast (below) - has been very positive and we hope to build on these initiatives next year.

All proceeds from Steve Irwin Day activities will be directed to our current conservation projects (as detailed on this site), so that we can ensure that the important work that Steve Irwin initiated can continue.

  
The Center for Ecosystem Survival (CES) is dedicated to creating global partnerships to inspire broadbased participation in the preservation of biological diversity through ecosystem protection worldwide.

The Sri Lanka Wildlife Conservation Society (SLWCS) is the first organization established outside of Sri Lanka with the sole purpose to conserve the dwindling biodiversity of Sri Lanka. After researching Human Elephant Conflict in Sri Lanka, the SLWCS initiated its’ first project in 1997 with the community-based initiative, Saving Elephants by Helping People (SEHP). The SLWCS began exploring ways to resolve the increasing threats associated with human-elephant conflict and its relationship with poverty. Wildlife conservation is not a stand-alone enterprise, but one best tackled simultaneously with community participation in order to ensure long-term success and viability of protecting wildlife.

 
 
We engage youth (especially at-risk and low-income kids and teens) in environmental stewardship projects worldwide, including beach, river, and mountain trash cleanups, wildlife habitat restoration, and native tree planting ($500 scholarship for top project). Recognized by the U.S. EPA, Gov't. Leaders, and others (Testimonials).

C4 is entirely run by volunteers without any Government funding and C4's approach to conservation, which has evolved over the past several years can be best described under the following fundamental principles of:

KNOWING, KEEPING AND SHARING OUR PLACE

KNOWING OUR PLACE: includes the environment, the people, the economy, the visitors, the impacts, the councils, the politics, and the developers.

KEEPING OUR PLACE: being concerned with land use on both private and crown land, working with local government and developers, attending council meetings, objecting to or supporting proposals, collecting and recording cassowary sightings, placing cassowary road signs, negotiating for and re-vegetating corridors on private and crown land, maintaining the cassowary food plant nursery, plant outs on private and crown land.

SHARING OUR PLACE: being actively involved in tourism through our interpretive display and the C4 development of an alternative marketing strategy for Mission Beach, promoting our natural environment. History of C4
