Saving our precious endangered flora and fauna. Funding for where the need is greatest.
TOGETHER, WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
Can you imagine a world without quolls? What if all our native gum trees disappeared? Whilst the outlook often seems bleak for Australia’s biodiversity, and there is much work to do, we believe that there is a lot to be positive about.
Our projects at FAME focus on partnerships with community organisations, government agencies and private stakeholders that we view as having a high chance of success, and a tangible impact on conservation.
Australia’s most endangered species are in critical need of protection. Together, we can halt the decline and create flourishing, connected ecosystems once again.
THREATENED SPECIES DAY 2021
September 7th marks Threatened Species Day in Australia - commemorating the anniversary of the last known Thylacine whilst highlighting the plight of our extant flora and fauna in a changing world.
Much of the discourse on this day surrounds Australia’s extinction rate, habitat loss and the dire state of many of our ecosystems.
But behind that there is a groundswell of momentum to revitalise our biodiversity. At FAME, that work is supported by partnering with small organisations and dedicated ecologists and scientists who might otherwise not attract the funding required.
FAME - SUPPORTING CONSERVATION ON THE GROUND
The Foundation looks at both large and small-scale projects, providing our on-ground partners with financial and conservation support to allow them to focus on saving what is most important: Australia’s most endangered species.
The ‘Where the need is greatest’ Fund is deployed at the Board’s discretion on nominated projects where we believe your donation will make the biggest impact, or can be directed quickly in an emergency situation like in response to the bushfires of 2019-20.
Donor Survey results from previous years have indicated a high level of belief and trust in not only your funds being spent well, but in the Board’s ability to choose projects with strong, accountable conservation outcomes.
To help us continue this vital work, please consider making a donation today.
Together, we can make a difference to the future of Australia’s unique flora and fauna.
