Australian Wildlife Conservancy is Western Australian based. It was established (from memory?) by Martin Copley. I guess that he has the same ideals as John Walmsley who established Earth Sanctuaries in South Australia and elsewhere. You can donate to them in a similar way. Theiur web site is

They have purchased Mornington Station in the Kimberley, Faure Island in Shark Bay, Mt Gibson Station between Wubin and Paynes Find about 400km NE of Perth, Paruna and Karakamia sanctuaries just out of Perth, etc. They are breeding endangered species on these sanctuaries such as Bilby, Woylie, Boodie, Numbat, Black-footed Rock-Wallaby, etc.

They also bought several of the Earth Sanctuaries properties when ESL got into financial difficulties.

They are very well worth supporting.
