Donate today and triple your impact for wildlife and their habitat.

Tiny, shy ghost bats with formidable fangs in Top End caves. Greater gliders with gigantic ears, silently gliding between treetops. Gigantic southern right whales with distinctive spots as unique as our fingerprints, in our oceans.

Across Australia, our wildlife is pretty extraordinary. Yet thousands of Australia’s most unique wildlife species are on the brink of extinction.

Our laws are meant to protect threatened wildlife. But right now, too often, these laws are not applied or not enforced.

If we raise $250,000 by the end of June, we can run bold, public interest court cases to increase legal protection for species like ghost bats, southern right whales, Murray cod, long-footed potoroos, swift parrots and greater gliders – and their habitat.

These creatures all play vital roles in the ecosystems they're part of. Once they're extinct, they're gone forever.

That's why we are developing a game-changing legal strategy to increase legal protections for threatened species like these six amazing creatures.

In doing so, we aim to set precedents that will increase protection for all wildlife in danger of extinction right across Australia.

Australia’s wildlife needs healthy forests, flowing rivers, thriving oceans and clean air. And we do too.

Donate today and TRIPLE your impact to get wildlife and their habitat the legal protection they deserve.

That’s right – every dollar donated will become $3.
