Saving Threatened Desert Species

Many Australians may be unaware of the extinction crisis facing our wildlife, with 31% of Australia’s mammals and 14% of Australia’s birds extinct or critically threatened. Despite the efforts of communities, researchers, businesses and governments, Australia is the global leader in species extinction.

Providing a solution to desert species extinction

Conservation Volunteers and FAUNA Research Alliance are bringing together all our organisational skills and expertise to secure Australia’s most threatened species. Our new initiative, Rewilding the Desert, intends to secure the future of Australia’s threatened and endangered wildlife, and elevate Australia as a global leader in species conservation and research.
