Wild Futures - helping wildlife in urgent need

Baby Tassie devils

Wild Futures is Conservation Volunteers Australia’s wildlife conservation program.  It makes a measurable difference to the future of many of Australia's most treasured and threatened animals.  

You can help our program this month in the following ways with all proceeds going to Wild Futures:


Within the Wild Futures program, Conservation Volunteers Australia have identified twelve particular species that require urgent assistance to ensure they do not succumb to extinction.

The landscape and wildlife are under huge amounts of pressure, dealing with threats from habitat loss and fragmentation, introduced predators, pollution, disease, invasive weeds, climate change and urban development.  In just a short time we have seen many species decline and an ever increasing number fall to extinction.


Through Wild Futures, Conservation Volunteers Australia contributes to wildlife conservation in a simple yet powerful way.  Working with recovery teams and guided by recovery and management plans, we identify the expert-approved conservation actions to which we can provide significant support.  Wild Futures allows supporters to get involved and make a valuable contribution through action and donation.  Volunteers get to roll up their sleeves and make an active difference to urgent species’ survival.  Together, Conservation Volunteers Australia and the Wild Futures supporters can implement these vital actions that will give these animals brighter, wilder futures.
