Women for Wildlife

Women for Wildlife

Taronga’s champions for the wild!

Support Taronga’s vision of securing a shared future for wildlife and people with the power of community and the strength of people acting towards a common goal.

What is Women for Wildlife?

The Women for Wildlife group will bring together like-minded women to leverage the power of collective giving to make impactful and transformational gifts for one of Taronga’s vital projects.

Working together, Women for Wildlife will have the chance to take part in exclusive activities and information events. A mix of hands-on activities, project updates from our experts, story sharing and networking opportunities will offer the chance to be part of a community that is learning and assisting our wildlife.

We look forward to welcoming you and reaching our goal together.

Raising funds for WildEnforce

We will start our journey by raising essential funds for WildEnforce. This critical project will put cost effective forensic tools into the hands of our border security and assist them to better detect and rescue illegally trafficked wildlife. The illegal wildlife trade is the second greatest contributor to species loss after habitat destruction, and a global criminal industry worth an estimated $23 billion dollars annually. Australia’s native wildlife are prized as exotic pets and are passing through borders either undetected or with falsified paperwork. Incredible native species such as the Blue Tongue and Shingleback Lizard are highly sought after, creating devastating consequences for our wildlife.

We will join the team of experts challenging the illegal wildlife trade. The goal is to raise $100,000.

For further information and expressions of interest please contact us at womenforwildlife@taronga.org.au

All donations of $2 or more are tax-deductible for Australian residents.
