Where we work

Covering over 12.9 million hectares (31.8 million acres), AWC owns, manages or works in partnership on more land than any other non-government conservation organisation in Australia.

Our locations are situated in key regions including the Kimberley, the Top End, Cape York, Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre and the southwestern forests. It is possible to visit 11 AWC sanctuaries.


Wildlife we protect

Australia is one of the most important nations on Earth for biodiversity. Most of Australia’s wildlife is found nowhere else in the world, making its conservation even more important.

AWC protects some of the nation’s most iconic and endangered wildlife including 74% of native mammal species, 88% of native bird species, 55% of reptile species and 54% of amphibian species.
