Short Story

Help us save Australia

Our biodiversity is part of what makes this country great, and some of our most treasured species are endangered or on the brink of extinction.

With your help, we can help those in need.

FAME’s future is a very challenging one. As the circumstances of our native wildlife deteriorate, more and more of our precious native species become endangered or extinct causing a greater reliance on Foundation’s such as FAME to provide on-ground monetary funding.

Campaign Story

The Foundation for Australia’s Most Endangered Species Limited (FAME) was established in 1993.

FAME is an independent, registered charity and a deductible gift recipient (DGR). A national organisation incorporated as a public company limited by guarantee, FAME is registered with both the Australian Charities and Not-for-profit Commission (ACNC).

Our vision is to prevent any further extinctions of Australian species.

Mission

FAME is the only organisation dedicated to helping Australian species most at risk of extinction. FAME seeks to fund on-ground conservation outcomes with a focus on seed-funding and innovation.

So far FAME’s supporters have helped bring more than 20 unique Australian species back from the brink. But with over 300 endangered animal species in Australia we face an uphill battle, a battle we cannot hope to win without the support of people like you.

All life is fragile, none more so than in Australia.

In Australia we have an exceptionally high number of species that can only be found here.

What’s more, the diversity or range of species is greater here in Australia than in many parts of the world.

Why does this matter?

Biological Diversity.

Biological diversity – or biodiversity – is a term we use to describe the variety of life on Earth. It refers to the wide variety of ecosystems and living organisms: animals, plants, their habitats and their genes.

Each species has a role to play in an ecosystem – much like each part of our body has its own function. Often in nature though, several species may fulfil a similar role in a particular ecosystem. This ensures that is one species is lost the ecosystem as a whole will continue functioning. However, if too many species are lost, as has happened in Australia since the arrival of Europeans, the the system starts to break down.

How do we do it?

At FAME we have come to believe that with your help, as our work progresses, whenever we restore a small piece of nature, we also restore ourselves as caretakers of the planet. Our work supporting projects to save Australia’s flora and fauna never ends – many species are under pressure and some face extinction.

FAME’s commitment to confront this reality has no boundaries, but our resources are always limited.

The Foundation’s projects are carefully chosen so that our precious funds are put to work in the most effective way possible. We do not gamble with the financial support of our members, Trusts, Foundations, corporate and grant funders, because we know that if we choose wisely we can buy the time that endangered Australian flora and fauna need to survive.

FAME believes that a partnership approach to saving endangered species is the best way to save wildlife. FAME works with like-minded organisations, governments, wildlife authorities and private landowners on projects that increase the likelihood of survival of one or more endangered species.
