More Info
Animal Works Australia is an Australian not-for-profit association that works with partners around the globe to conserve wildlife. We are a volunteer-run body of conservationists, educators, business professionals and creatives that are passionate about the natural world and determined not to let the world’s most iconic species disappear.

Why we’re Different

Animal Works only raises funds for physical resources that animals and habitats need in order to survive and thrive naturally and safely. We don’t pay ‘grey’ costs like wages, admin or marketing fees. We purchase equipment, natural untainted land, veterinary supplies, food, anti-poaching gear, educational materials and research tools (like camera traps). You can be sure that your donations to Animal Works Australia will go directly to a real solution – not into anyone’s salary.

Help Us Help Them!

Be a part of Animal Works and help us purchase the equipment, veterinary supplies, habitat, food and all other resources for the research, rescue, rehabilitation and release of endangered and threatened wildlife around the world. Choose your project on our 'What We Do' page and show your support.
