Did you know that Australia has the worst mammal extinction rate in the world?
A very high proportion of our surviving animals and plants (over 1,700 species) are listed as threatened with extinction.
Alcock Family Foundation has committed $125,000 to the Australian Wildlife Conservatory (AWC) which owns and manages more than 3 million hectares and protects native wildlife across the country.
AWC protects some of the last remaining populations of animals on our endangered species list including Bilbies, Numbats, Bridled Nailtail Wallabies and Purple-crowned Fairy-wrens.
The donation will help with important conservation projects that provide a safe haven for many of our endangered animals. Watch this clip to see what the team do.
