Rare opportunity to save our iconic species in the most unique wilderness in Australia - The Kimberley.
We’ve only got one Earth. A planet that we all – animals, plants and people – share and depend upon. The need to protect it has never been greater.
For over 50 years WWF has been a leading voice for nature. We are the world’s largest conservation organisation, working in 100 countries and with over 5 million supporters. WWF-Australia is the 7th largest member of the WWF Network. We work with governments, businesses and communities on environmental issues with a single mission: to build a world where people and nature thrive.
The Kimberley Indigenous Ranger Threatened Species Program works with Indigenous rangers to safeguard threatened species within the Kimberley and these strategic, scientifically-based collaborations are delivering solid conservation results.
