The Australian Association of Bush Regenerators works with bush regenerators, land managers and agencies who use the skills of bush regenerators. AABR promotes and encourages best practice on-ground restoration, so that we can protect, repair and manage Australia’s native bushland, which means we’re contributing to maintaining vibrant, healthy, sustainable ecosystems across Australia that benefit people and nature.
We’re the only organisation that offers an industry accreditation for practitioners that focuses on recognising the unique skill set required of on-ground practitioners working with site resilience.
We provide networking and educational opportunities by hosting field trips, workshops, forums and online learning opportunities on best practice case studies via regenTV.
By supporting the bush regeneration community through ongoing education, we are equipping practitioners with best practice knowledge in a rapidly changing field, that’s at the forefront of addressing climate change impacts on biodiversity and ecosystem integrity.
Mandurah Wildlife Rescue is a registered environmental charity which rehabilitates injured and orphaned wildlife back to the bush. Our more than 150 volunteers (we don't have paid staff) also undertake school and community education on wildlife protection and conservation.
After 11 years of operations in 2019, we will build an onsite regional education centre and commence certified training for wildlife carers and eco tourism events. This new education centre will be separate from the rehabilitation centre and eventually will be able to financially support the important wildlife rehabilitation work we do. We are entirely dependent on grants and the generosity of public donations. We are therefore seeking donations and sponsorships from wildlife advocates to help us to realise our dream to become a regional environmental education centre to train the next generation of wildlife carers and protectors.
All money donated to Mandurah Wildlife Rescue goes to the care, housing and vet costs of injured wildlife and supports the infrastructure for their enclosures, education centre and resources. We have no paid staff and do not employ marketing companies. Thank you for your support.

Monika's Doggie Rescue is a registered charity that believes in saving and re-homing as many dogs as we can from the council pounds. Monika's Doggie Rescue has rescued and re-homed over 11,400 dogs and over 200 cats over the years.
For many years Monika Biernacki and a group of volunteers have been rescuing dogs from death row and successfully re-homing them with permanent and loving owners. In 2001 the charity DoggieRescue.com was established.
Many of the dogs we take are small dogs and puppies but we also take as many bigger dogs as we have carers for. Most of the dogs we rescue are cross breeds but from time to time we have pure breed dogs.
How it WorksDogs rescued from the pound are microchipped, heartworm tested and vaccinated by a veterinarian, who also gives them a basic health check and provides us with an estimate of their age. The dogs are desexed (if required) and given any additional veterinary treatment to return them to good health.
All of the rescued dogs are then cared for, awaiting adoption into a permanent loving home. Once the dogs have completed 8-10 days quarantine (so we can observe them for any illnesses they may have picked up) they stay at our shelter, Doggiewood at Ingleside in the northern beaches of Sydney or can be placed into a foster home.
We have over 200 dogs up for adoption. They are all featured on this site. Over a year we save about 500 dogs.
We ask re-imbursement for the basic desexing, vaccination, microchipping and heartworm testing only - generally between $350 and $500.
NO KILL PolicyMonika's Doggie Rescue has a NO KILL policy so all dogs we get from the pound are re-housed or stay with us for their life. This policy includes accepting former DoggieRescue dogs back if their owners discard them.

The story of the Hunter Wetlands Centre Australia is nothing less than inspirational. It is currently run entirely by volunteers and receives no funding from local, state or federal governments.Back in the mid 1980s what is now a vibrant wetland refuge was a dump in every sense of the word! This part of the Hunter estuary wetland system was bare, derelict and overgrown. A significant patch of wetland in Shortland had been converted to football fields and a clubhouse but subsequently abandoned. On the verge of becoming a Council rubbish dump it was saved by community action.Today, Hunter Wetlands Centre Australia is a vibrant wetland ecosystem bursting with life. The site is regarded as a wetland of national and international importance and the centre enjoys a growing reputation for excellence in wetland conservation, education and ecotourism.This remarkable transformation was due to the determination and persistence of the local community and some far-sighted organisations, who have joined forces to protect and restore this remarkable wetland for the benefit of all who depend on it… and those who simply enjoy it!.

ONE DRUM // nyc2rio - A film about a road trip of best friends from North to South America and the internal inquisition of ones purpose in life.Watch trailer herewww.vimeo.com/valenfilms/onedrumtrailerCompleted in 2013.
In 2017 I am travelling around Australia with my partner to shoot the next film simply titled ONE DRUM II, for the moment. This is a totally self funded project, though any contributions will be greatly appreciated for the completion of the film. Though the film will be completely different from the first, it will feature deep spiritual context from both myself and the people that are interviewed along the way.

The Coral Sea borders the Great Barrier Reef and the island archipelagos of Melanesia, and contains marine ecosystems of exceptionally high quality and biodiversity. This region accommodates the last great reservoir of ultra-diverse coral reefs in the world, however it currently has insufficient marine protected areas to achieve robust conservation outcomes. Our aim is to raise awareness of the ecological and social value of the Coral Sea and the Eastern Coral Triangle and take a proactive role in its sustainable management.Marine reserves support local fisheries and safeguard biodiversity, but in this region, they can only be successful if they are initiated, administered and supported by the local communities. The "Sea Women of Melanesia" program selects intelligent and determined young Melanesian women and trains them in conservation theory, scuba diving and marine biology survey techniques so they have the skills to communicate the need for marine reserves to their local communities and can identify areas suitable for marine protected areas on their own coral reefs.The Coral Sea Foundation supports the Sea Women trainees in this work and helps the landowners to research and register their marine protected areas and provides humanitarian assistance by way of clean water infrastructure, medical care and education support in order to promote the participation of the community in the marine reserve process. Our grassroots approach has a proven track record of success, and the broad skill-set within our team and our experience working in the remote islands of Melanesia gives us a unique capability to deliver cost-effective results in this area of exceptionally high conservation value.

What do we charge? We do not charge carers/rescuers anything. Our reward is helping the cats find homes and making space at the carers. Adopters usually pay a fee to the carer to cover the costs they have incurred in desex/vacc/chipping etc, this is normally around $145-200 depending on the costs they have incurred.
World Animal Protection ends the needless suffering of animals. We believe that animals matter, they suffer and feel pain. Together we can move the world to protect animals in communities, in the wild, in farming, and when disasters hit.

Ocean Impact Organisation (OIO) has a mission to create an abundant and sustainable ocean through inspiration, innovation, leadership and good business. We exist to help people start, grow and invest in businesses that positively impact the ocean.
Why? We live on Planet Ocean. 70% of the earth's surface is covered by ocean and the aquatic wonderland beneath the sea contains vastly more habitable space than the terrestrial landmass populated by humans.
Planet Ocean regulates our climate; produces two thirds of the oxygen we breathe; fuels the water cycle; sustains the livelihoods and provides nourishment for nearly three billion people; is fundamental to diverse cultures; is essential to global transport; is critical to addressing climate change and is home to millions of marine species, many of which are yet to be studied by science. But Planet Ocean is in danger.
Launched by founders Nick Chiarelli and Tim Silverwood, OIO is Australia’s first ocean impact ecosystem and startup accelerator for entrepreneurs and businesses making a positive impact on the ocean.
OIO is a registered charity based in Sydney, Australia.
Australian Wildlife Conservancy (AWC) was established more than 20 years ago because Australia has the worst mammal extinction rate in the world and a very high proportion of our surviving animals and plants (over 1,700 species) are listed as threatened with extinction.
“Business as usual” for conservation in Australia will mean additional extinctions. AWC is therefore developing and implementing a new model for conservation to reverse the decline in our wildlife.
Our strategy is simple:
Ocean Future Fund is the home of Ocean Youth, a program aimed at building the capacity of young, ocean loving leaders to influence positive actions for oceans.

The work of the Conflict Islands Conservation Initiative Trust (CICI) began in 2017 and it was established as a charitable trust in 2018 to garner financial, human and other support to protect and conserve the natural environment of the Coral Sea and The Conflict Islands group with its surrounding and connected marine habitat, in close partnership with The Coral Islands Ltd a Papua New Guinean business. Continuing environmental crisis, including anthropocentric climate change and the unregulated, illegal harvesting of endangered turtles and sharks, led business owner Mr Ian Gowrie-Smith to conclude ” Doing nothing is simply no longer an option!”.
CICI works closely with communities to provide education, training and improve the conservation of marine ecosystems and associated species. Our efforts are accomplished through our broad range of programs and resources, none of which would be possible without the support of our local community, partners, and donors.
Assistance Dogs Australia trains Labradors and Golden Retrievers to help people living with disabilities throughout Australia. Founded in 1996, Assistance Dogs Australia trains and places unique dogs with Australians in unique situations. We currently train dogs that specialise in support for people with a physical disability, autism or PTSD. As well as providing a range of services to these individuals and their families.
Our free-to-client assistance dogs provide Independence, self-esteem, improved health and relationships to individuals and families – resulting in stronger and more successful communities.
Every Assistance Dog undergoes tailored training to meet the individual needs of their new owner. We support people living with physical disabilities, autism, post-traumatic stress and dementia, as well as schools and care facilities.
It can take up to two years and costs over $35,000 to train each dog. Assistance Dogs are placed completely free of charge with their new owner, providing life-changing support for up to 10 years.
Vets Beyond Borders (VBB) is an animal charity working towards a ‘One Health’ world for animals and people. VBB deploys volunteer vets and vet nurses who work to help improve the lives of animals and developing communities around the world. Our volunteers provide desperately needed veterinary treatment and care and are actively involved in efforts to humanely control the population of homeless dogs and cats by surgical sterilisation (animal birth control).
In countries where rabies is an ever-present threat to humans and animals VBB volunteers work tirelessly with animal birth control and anti-rabies immunisation (ABC-AR) projects dramatically increasing the number of animals that receive such care and reducing the risks of spread of this dreadful, but entirely preventable disease.
We deliver clinical training courses for personnel working with animal welfare projects overseas and community/school education classes to increase awareness of the importance of kindness to animals.
In Australia VBB volunteers stand ready to deliver prompt treatment to animals affected by natural disasters – bushfires, floods, cyclones, droughts or in the event of an emergency animal disease (EAD) incursion into Australia.
