WWF-Australia: Our solutions
‘Down under’ conservation
We take a science-based approach to our conservation work and are committed to real, measurable outcomes for the environment which directly benefit Australian species and natural resources like water, land and the marine environment.
WWF's work in Australia focuses on eight key areas: climate change, weeds and feral animals, land and forests, marine protection, species, water management, sustainable industry and business partnerships.
Species: Rock WallabyYou’ve got to be lucky to see the shy black-flanked rock-wallaby, a small and extremely agile marsupial that darts among rocky outcrops and caves in central and southwest Australia. It emerges only at dusk to feed on grass, leaves, bark and fruits. But it’s a spectacle to behold on warm wintry days, when this gorgeous animal is sometimes glimpsed soaking up the sun's rays.
Oceans: Great Barrier Reef
Australia's Great Barrier Reef is one of the world's seven natural wonders, it is a prized World Heritage Area, the largest reef system and the biggest living structure on the planet. It sprawls over a jaw-dropping 344,400 square kilometres – an area so large that it can be seen from space.
