Australian Wildlife Conservancy
Outback Spirit proudly sponsors the Australian Wildlife Conservancy
AWC is an independent, non-profit organisation dedicated to protecting Australia' s threatened wildlife and ecosystems.
Currently, AWC owns and manages 22 sanctuaries covering over 6 million acres and over 300 ecosystems.
These sanctuaries also protect a significant proportion of Australia's biodiversity, including 72% of all bird species and 67% of all mammal species.
In fact, AWC now protects more terrestrial animal species than any other organisation in Australia. Funded by tax-deductible donations, the AWC is taking action to protect Australia's wildlife by:
Acquiring land to establish sanctuaries for the conservation of threatened species and ecosystems.
Implementing practical, on-ground conservation programs such as the eradication of feral animals and the reintroduction of endangered species.
Conducting scientific research into key issues affecting biodiversity in Australia.
Undertaking public education programs to promote awareness of the plight of Australia's wildlife.
With more than 1,500 animals and plants under threat of extinction, it is now clear that the challenge of saving Australia's biodiversity is too great for Governments acting alone. We at Outback Spirit are immensely proud of our involvement in helping to save Australia's precious wildlife.
Outback Spirit donates to the Australian Wildlife Conservancy
As a business that escorts people into the outback to show off our magnificent flora and fauna, we felt compelled to preserve it. That's precisely why we donate funds every year to Australian Wildlife Conservancy (AWC). We donate about $25 for each passenger that we move per year, but this seemingly small amount will add up to over $100,000 for 2013.
The money goes towards supporting important AWC conservation projects that make a real difference.
