Clean Up Australia
MyOrg's clean up Austraila Day is 365 days of the year, but who's counting. Next time you see a piece of litter in the natural environment - pick it up! You will be well rewarded, not to mention you will be passing the gift of a clean environment onto the next person that passes your way.
Protect Our National Parks
National parks face many threats from high end accommodation, development proposals, fast-growing visitor numbers, horse-riding, events, feral and invasive species, increasing helicopter and small plane joy flights.
The Blue Mountains National Park also faces destructive flooding from raising Warragamba Dam wall and the impacts of the Western Sydney airport.
Blue Mountains National Park is one of the eight protected areas that, in 2000, was inscribed to form part of the UNESCO World Heritage–listed Greater Blue Mountains Area.
National parks need good managers who are sufficiently resourced to protect the parks’ values. However, the state’s park managers (National Parks and Wildlife Service) has been subject to funding cuts, restructuring and loss of staff expertise.

Biggest Rewilding Project
Something exciting is happening on Yorke Peninsula in South Australia...
WWF-Australia is proud to be working with our partners to restore and rewild this spectacular landscape. Around 27 native species have already been lost from this area, and many of those are at risk from disappearing from Australia forever.
This is our best chance to build an ark of hope on Yorke and turn the tide on our nation-wide extinction crisis. Together, we’ve set an ambitious goal: reintroduce locally extinct species across 170,000 hectares of the southern Yorke Peninsula over the next five years. This includes threatened species like woylies, red-tailed phascogales and bandicoots.
Will you help turn the tide on Australia’s extinction crisis?
