You can help Australia's unique fauna and flora by supporting an appeal that actually saved some of our most beautiful animals in previous years. Enormous public support rescued the Lord How Island Woodhen, the Gould's Petrel and the Yellow-footed rock-wallaby from extinction.
In 1978 there were only 22 Lord Howe Woodhens left. After the Foundation raised $350,000 for a captive breeding program the population today is now stable at over 240 birds.
In 1990 scientists funded by the Foundation determined there were only 150 breeding pairs of the rare seabird, the Gould's Petrel. Breeding success was extremely low and threats high. In 2002 there were over 856 pairs of birds nesting and a ten-fold increase in numbers of chicks produced.
The Yellow-footed rock-wallaby has bounced back from 80 individuals to 400 and steadily increasing. In 1980 the Foundation purchase Coturaundee Nature Reserve, one of only two homes for this wallaby. And in 1983 the Foundation raised over $300,000 for a massive fox and goat eradication program.
The Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife has proved that with your help we can save Australian species.
The Foundation funds projects assisting in the recovery of different threatened species. The aid provided varies depending on the species and its threats. With your donation to our Threatened Species Appeal you will help restore habitat and give our unique animals and plants a safe place to live and thrive. Right now the Foundation is raising funds to help the Corroboree Frog, Eastern Bristlebird, koala, Black-footed Rock-wallaby, Mountain Pygmy-possum and Superb Parrot.
The Foundation raises and directs funds towards projects that fight the major threats to our species - habitat loss, introduced pests and lacking knowledge of our wild creatures' needs.
