Sponsor A Conservation Project



Why Sponsor?

 Steve and I are committed to making a difference by working to maintain the environment for future generations. Terri Irwin

Many of the world's species are in danger of extinction. A number of these threatened species are cared for by Australia Zoo and Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors. You can help Australia Zoo fight for wildlife conservation around the world by sponsoring one of our vital conservation projects! Conservation project sponsorships make great gifts too!

By sponsoring one of Australia Zoo's Conservation Projects, not only do have the satisfaction of knowing you are making a difference, but you will also receive gifts of appreciation according to the level at which you sponsor. Wooo-hoo!

Our Conservation Projects

Australia Zoo Rescue Unit


From koalas to Green Sea turtles, the Australia Zoo Rescue Unit is dedicated to rescuing all wildlife in need. From Brisbane to Kilcoy and beyond the team travels far and wide with a proven catch and release program in place - their aim is to successfully rescue, rehabilitate and release. The team works closely with Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors - Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital to ensure each animal receives the best possible care.

Cheetah Conservation


With only 9,000 to 12,000 cheetahs left in the wild, this magnificent species has become critically endangered due to loss of habitat and cheetah-human conflict. Conflict occurs when cheetahs are wrongly blamed for livestock losses and subsequently killed by angry farmers.

Crocodile Conservation


Through programs such as Crocs in Space, International Crocodile Rescue, not to mention the Irwin family's long-time involvement in trapping and relocating rogue crocodiles for the QPWS, we are fighting at the frontline in the battle to save the Saltwater Crocodile, and all crocodilian species, from persecution and eventual extinction.

Elephant Conservation


With no more than 30,000 elephants left in the forests of Asia, the Asian elephant is rapidly declining throughout its range. In fact, it is thought that this current figure is less than one tenth of the population of the Asian elephant's African cousin.

Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve


The Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve (SIWR) is a wetland conservation property and a tribute to Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin. The 135,000 ha property, in Queensland's Cape York Peninsula, is home to a set of important spring fed wetlands which provide a critical water source to threatened habitat, provide permanent flow of water to the Wenlock River, and is home to rare and vulnerable plants and wildlife.

Tasmanian Devil Conservation


Tasmanian Devils suffer from Devil Facial Tumour Disease (DFTD), an infectious cancer that can now be found across 70% of Tasmania. This disease is a cancer killing Tasmanian Devils in the wild at an alarming rate with the species now listed as Endangered under Tasmania's Threatened Species Protection Act 1995.

Tiger Conservation


It has taken millions of years for tigers to evolve into the beautiful, awe-inspiring predator we have today. Once roaming over nearly one-fifth of the Earth, the tiger has been pushed into small isolated islands of habitat, often surrounded by a sea of humanity. It is presently a very real possibility that the tiger will become extinct in our lifetime. Tiger conservation is therefore now more critical than ever.
