BENEFITING: Friends of Australian Wildlife Conservancy
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
Australia is one of the most biodiverse nations on the planet. Sadly however, it is losing native wildlife at a catastrophic rate. In fact, Australia has the worst mammal extinction rate in the world and 1,800 surviving animals and plants are now at risk of becoming extinct.
I am running the New York City Marathon this weekend, 26.2 miles (42.19kms). Thank you all so much for your emotional support. If you would like to show your support in $$$ I would love to raise a little money for this great charity that is truly making a difference in Wildlife Conservation in Aus.
Friends of Australian Wildlife Conservancy, Inc (Friends of AWC) is a US-based, non-profit organization dedicated to supporting Australian Wildlife Conservancy (AWC) protect Australia's unique wildlife and ecosystems. AWC is the largest private owner of land for conservation in Australia, protecting endangered wildlife across more than 8 million acres (3.25 million hectares) in iconic places such as the central Australian Outback, the Kimberley, Cape York and the Top End. Through practical, on-ground land management informed by world-class science, AWC is successfully halting and reversing the tide of extinctions in Australia. With most of Australia's wildlife not found anywhere else in the world, we need your help to provide a more secure future for our threatened wildlife and their habitats.
By donating to Friends of AWC, expatriate Australians and Americans have the opportunity to make a real difference to securing the future of Australia's rare and unique species.
