Several NGOs have recognised this disturbing loss of Australian
biodiversity, and with financial input largely from the community, have set up
wildlife refuges and undertaken innovative research, monitoring, restoratio, and
weed and feral animal control programs to limit and in some cases reverse
declining native species populations. Some of these properties have quite large
feral-proof enclosures inside which re-introduced threatened native animals have
The outstanding NGOs, in my view, are Australian Wildlife Conservancy and
Bush Heritage Australia. Both have good web sites.
