Expanding Christmas Island's Reptile Captive Breeding Facilities

FNPW & Parks Australia: Christmas Island National Park:

Threatened Species

Thanks to your support, reptile species only found on Christmas Island are being saved from extinction through a captive breeding program established in 2009. Since then, FNPW and our supporters have funded two projects in 2013 and 2015 to house the growing reptile populations. The building of a new reptile housing facility and the construction of eight predator-proof enclosures on the island, funded by a FNPW grant in 2013. The facil.. READ MORE

Habitat Use by Recolonising Long-nosed Potoroos

FNPW & Parks Australia: Booderee National Park:

Threatened Species

Thanks to your support, scientists will learn species-saving lessons from ground-breaking Potoroo reintroduction work. Long-nosed Potoroos experienced a massive decline during the last 200 years. But intensive fox control efforts helped their recovery, and left large areas of apparently suitable habitat vacant. Before, scientists were unsure of what constituted good habitat for potoroo reintroductions. Now they aim to discover how Long-nosed .. READ MORE

Koala Action Group Bushcare Planting

FNPW & Redland City Council:

Land & water conservation

Thanks to your support, koala habitat in Redlands is increasing through community tree plantings. The plantings extend corridors within which koalas can safely travel, feed, find mates, and raise their young. Community ownership is encouraged as locals are invited to plant trees and learn about koalas. Before the plantings, fewer Koalas could survive in the area, and were at higher risk of being hit by cars or attacked by dogs as they tr.. READ MORE

Rehabilitation of Phillip Island to support the translocation of green parrots

FNPW & Parks Australia: Norfolk Island National Park:

Land & water conservation

Thanks to your support, degraded habitat will be restored on Phillip Island due to the construction of an on-island nursery for endemic and threatened plants. A sense of ownership will grow as community members participate in running the nursery, propagating, and planting on Phillip Island. Before this, Phillip Island (6 km off Norfolk Island) was been stripped of plants and topsoil by introduced rabbits, pigs, and goats. Now that the introdu.. READ MORE

Rising from the Ashes - the Feather-leaved Banksia

FNPW & WA Department of Parks and Wildlife:

Land & water conservation

Thanks to your support, the critically endangered Feather-leaved Banksia Banksia brownii will receive much needed conservation attention. Banksias don't live forever, they get old and susceptible to disease. They need fire to release seeds and recruit new plants. This population of Feather-leaved Banksia is in major decline due to a lack of fire, and a regeneration burn is needed to save it. Post-fire, the local community can help monitor the rec.. READ MORE

Seagrass Dispersal by Dugongs and Green Sea Turtles

FNPW & James Cook University:

Land & water conservation

Thanks to your support, research is underway into the link between endangered Green Sea Turtles, vulnerable Dugongs, and seagrass, to increase survival rates for all. Floods and cyclones wiped out 98% of the seagrass meadows between Cairns and Townsville (over 400 km!) in 2010-11, which saw a more than double increase in annual dugong and sea turtle deaths in 2011-12. Now research is underway to determine how far and effectively these marine .. READ MORE

Securing Endangered Pomaderris Plants from Extinction

FNPW & Australian National Botanic Gardens:

Land & water conservation

Thanks to your support, two endangered Australian plant species will be secured for the future. The best method for growing these two Pomaderris plants will be determined, and resources of seeds and plants from these species will be built up. Animals like the Powerful Owl, Masked Owl, Eastern Bent-winged Bat, Yellow-bellied Glider, and Brush-tailed Rock-wallaby benefit from these Pomaderris species. Before, these plants faced extinction, with.. READ MORE
