The Australian Rainforest Conservation Society, founded in 1982, is a national, non-government organisation with headquarters in Brisbane. Its goal, through research, lobbying, public education and grass-roots support, is to protect, repair and restore the rainforests of Australia and to maximise the protection of forest biodiversity.

Australian Seabird Rescue

Australian Seabird Rescue was established at Ballina, New South Wales in 1992, following the rescue of a pelican hooked in fishing tackle. Since that time, ASR volunteers have been involved in the rescue and rehabilitation of seabirds and shorebirds, marine turtles, and to date, have rescued over 1000 Australian Pelicans.

Australian Wildlife Conservancy

The Australian Wildlife Conservancy began life in 1991 when Martin and Lorraine Copley bought the land to establish Karakamia sanctuary in the Perth Hills. A further six properties and conservation projects have followed. The Australian Wildlife Conservancy is a charitable organisation funded by donations from the public, and currently owns 15 sanctuaries covering more than 1.1m hectares (2.7 million acres). This land is actively managed for conservation and to ensure a future for Australia's native animals. Conservancy based tourism and guided walks at some of our sanctuaries provide a wonderful opportunity for visitors to see and to understand the plight of these threatened species.

Gluepot Reserve

Gluepot Reserve is Birds Australia's first publicly funded Reserve. Located in the semi-arid South Australian mallee it is considered by many to be one of the crown jewels in the nation's reserve system. This 54,000 ha large area of virgin mallee scrub contains no less than 18 nationally endangered bird species and a unique flora and fauna adapted to the harsh conditions. Purchased in 1997, Gluepot is rapidly becoming a centre for scientific research. Its accessibility means it is one of the few areas in Australia where birdwatchers can relatively easily observe otherwise hard-to-find species.


This blog displays photos acumulated while working in the areas affected by the February 2009 Bushfires. The aim is to document how the natural environment is recovering and the diversity of species that are re-appearing.
