Wildlife Conservancy of Tropical Queensland
Neither the States nor the Commonwealth can continue to meet the expanding cost of nature conservation from tax revenues alone. We must therefore look for additional ways to conserve and manage our fabulous biodiversity. The Conservancy has an extremely well-established track record in tropical Queensland, and has been working to meet an urgent need for practically-oriented non-government wildlife conservation for over 10 years.
The core objective of the Conservancy is to work with the community, all levels of government and the private sector, to conserve wildlife in the most biodiverse region of Australia. With many years of experience and a wealth of expertise, the Board of Management of the Conservancy and its staff are at the forefront of non-government nature conservation in tropical Queensland.
Australian Wildlife Conservancy (AWC)
AWC: has a new model for conservation. The Australian Wildlife Conservancy (AWC) was established more than 10 years ago because Australia has the worst mammal extinction rate in the world and a very high proportion of our surviving animals and plants (over 1,700 species) are listed as threatened with extinction. 'Business as usual' for conservation in Australia will mean additional extinctions.
AWC is therefore developing and implementing a new model for conservation to reverse the decline in our wildlife. Our strategy is simple: Establish sanctuaries by acquiring land and through partnerships with landholders; and Implement practical land management – feral animal control and fire management – informed by good science.

Bush Heriatge Australia
Bush Heritage Australia is a private conservation organisation that protects millions of hectares of ecologically important land, thanks to the generosity of everyday Australians who support us.
Our story began in Tasmania, 1990, when Dr Bob Brown used prize money from an environmental award as a down payment to protect 241 hectares of old‑growth forest from wood chipping in Tasmania's Liffey Valley.
The campaign to pay off the remaining $200 000 loan was the birth of Bush Heritage and that land is now our Liffey River and Dry's Bluff Reserves, parts of which are UN World Heritage Listed.
We soon embraced a national vision for conservation, buying other reserves around Australia to preserve threatened areas.
With over 70% of Australian land privately held we can extend our reach by partnering with other land owners, sharing our knowledge and methods to help others achieve their conservation goals. Source: Web Site
South Endeavour Trust
South Endeavour Trust was established in 2007 as an independent, not for profit, charitable trust with the sole purpose of contributing to nature conservation in Australia.
South Endeavour currently owns and manages ten conservation reserves. To date we have focused on three areas of great conservation need, each of which has extraordinarily diverse biodiversity values. These are: Northeastern New South Wales; the endangered rainforests of the Atherton Tablelands; and the intersection of the Wet Tropics and Cape York bioregions in Far North Queensland.
Tolga Bat Hospital
Our activities began in 1990, the year tick paralysis was discovered in Spectacled flying foxes (SFF) on the Atherton Tablelands. We originally worked with the SFFs resident at the Tolga Scrub, and hence our name. We now work with any bat, megabat or microbat, from anywhere. Bats come to us for rescue from hundreds of kilometres away, and we also take bats for sanctuary who are being retired from zoos.
