Care for the Wild
Wildthings Worldwide has adopted 'Ping' a yellow-eyed penguin from New Zealand for one year.
This is helping Care for the Wild protect and enhance the habitat that Ping and his friends need to survive and thrive.
His adoption will also help Care for the Wild to continue the work they are doing with the Yellow-eyed Penguin Trust to make sure New Zealand's unique yellow-eyed penguins continue to recover.
Wildthings Worldwide donated to Devil Ark to support their ‘Fences for devils’ program.
Devil Ark is the largest conservation breeding program for the Tasmanian devil on mainland Australia. The iconic Tasmanian marsupial is at serious risk of extinction from the highly contagious devil facial tumour disease (DFTD).
Devil Ark’s ambitious breeding program is hoping to help ensure the Tasmanian Devil's survival.

|WWW has made a donation to Saving the Survivors www.savingthesurvivors.co.za.This includes rhinos that have been wounded, rhinos where the horn has been hacked off, and victims of snaring and traumatic incidents. Rhino survivors are estimated at between 80 and 120 animals per year that will benefit from this project. This number will increase as the amount of poached rhinos increase. While a few of these animals are brought in to our hospital, most are being treated in the bush in their normal environment as transporting these injured animals are just not possible or feasible.
|WWW has made a donation to 'Get Up' to fight for the survival of Australia's Great Barrier Reef.
The Australian Environmental MinisterGreg Hunt, who moonlights as the Mining Minister has given approval for the disastrous Indian Adani Carmichael Mine to go ahead.
This coal mine will be the biggest in Australia. It will mean massive and continual dredging and dumping in the World heritage Area of the Great Barrier Reef with thousands of coal ships every year.
Adani has a shocking environmental record for cleaning up after itself. The donations go towards an online advertising camapign. Whenever a potential investor is researching Adani, the first thing they'll find is a Get Up video exposing the truth.
