Wombat and Friends is partnering with the Australian Wildlife Conservancy to support them in their mission to protect all Australian native species and the habitats in which they live.
"Australia has the worst rate of mammal extinction in the world. Since European settlement in 1788, more than 10 percent of mammal species have disappeared due to predation by introduced species, such as feral cats and foxes, and habitat degradation. More than 1,700 species are currently facing extinction. Inaction or ‘business as usual’ for conservation will lead to additional extinctions. To reverse this decline [AWC] have developed a new model for conservation in which [they]:
- Purchase or acquire land through partnerships with Indigenous groups, governments and private landholders; and
- Implement practical land management (feral animal control and fire management) which is informed by world-class science."
Proceeds from every sale made with Wombat and Friends will be donated so that you and your family can both learn about and help preserve Australia's unique flora and fauna at the same time.
