Australian Wildlife Conservancy

Australian Wildlife Conservancy (AWC) is dedicated to the effective conservation of all Australian animal species and the habitats in which they live.

AWC is the largest private (non-profit) owner of land for conservation in Australia, protecting endangered wildlife across more than 3.15 million hectares in iconic regions such as the Kimberley, Cape York, the Top End and Lake Eyre. We protect over 86% of all Australian bird species and 71% of all native mammal species, more than any other non-government organisation.

Most importantly, AWC safeguards some of the largest remaining populations of many threatened species, such as Bilbies, Numbats and Bridled Nailtail Wallabies.

AWC has developed an effective new model for conservation focused on practical land management – including fire management and feral animal control - informed by world-class science.

AWC is unique in that around 80% of our staff are based in the field. Our commitment to deploying resources in the field has enabled us to deliver ground-breaking programs in relation to fire management, feral animal control and endangered species translocations.
