Over the past 50 years, WWF has grown into the largest and most influential independent conservation organization in the world. We have over five million supporters globally and we operate in more than 100 countries. On 29 June 1978, WWF was established in Australia, with just three staff working out of an old factory in Sydney.
The conservation budget for our first year of operation was around $80,000. Today, we’re the nation’s largest conservation organization, with more than 500,000 supporters and projects underway throughout Australia and the Oceania region.
We started to support WWF-Australia during the past year due to mega-fires in Australia. We wanted to help in some way, and they can do it on my behalf. It was heartbroken and terrifying to see all that devastation. Over 24.7 million acres of land burned, and over 1 billion animals have been killed without including animals that died due to heatwaves and lack of food and water.
WWF supported the communities and wildlife, creating an initiative called the first-aid box, which contained all you need to rescue animals. Then, they commenced with the regeneration program.
From Monday 20, you can follow them on broadcast TV and see this new “Regenerate Australia” campaign. You also can discover new and innovative ideas that will help reforest and regenerate Australia, such as solar VHF tags for Koalas.
Moreover, WWF has launched a “Defending The Unburn Six” campaign to create laws that protect six unburn forests across Queensland, New South Wales, and Victoria. Sign here to help them and help us because we can not survive without forests.
