Rewild Australia

Australia is a land of diverse and stunning ecosystems, and home to many unique plants and wildlife. Australia also has the highest mammal extinction rate in the world and is experiencing significant declines of many species. WWF is committed to reversing the decline of Australia’s wildlife to help restore biodiversity.

On the 30th of August 2023, we welcomed WWF Australia on the issue of Australia having the highest mammal extinction rate in the world while also experiencing significant declines of many species.

Using science and Indigenous Ecological Knowledge, WWF is rewilding Australia by returning locally-extinct species.

Key insights

What does WWF Australia do? 

 

WWF’s mission is a harmonious future for humans and nature. We don’t just spotlight problems; we focus on solutions that benefit people, climate, and nature, often requiring political support through theories of change. We collaborate with corporations to drive market-based transformations and, at times, engage in hands-on, ground-level action to offer practical solutions.

Are you hopeful we can innovate in time to address the climate crisis?

 

We remain focused on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set for 2030. Most prominent scientists agree that if we don’t address these issues by 2030, we’ll face significant challenges. These goals encompass social, cultural, and environmental aspects.

While we’re currently not on track to achieve the SDGs by 2030, I hold hope that we can succeed, given humanity’s history of accomplishing remarkable feats.

What are the impacts of the funds raised for WWF Australia through the i=Change platform? 

 

We’ve directed the funds to our rewilding program. This program aims to help species that are no longer able to inhabit their landscapes. For example, we were able to re-wild platypus back into the Royal National Park in New South Wales, which is an area that was impacted by bush fires and drought.

Every $50 raised helps introduce a lost species.

Be the change today.
