Partnerships & Community Involvement
Our partnerships with local community groups and organisations plays a pivotal role in our contribution to conservation.
Wildlife Habitat supports organisations such as:
Tree Roo Rescue and Conservation Centre (TRRACC) through the sale of merchandise, donations, staff assistance and education.
TRRACC is a non-profit organisation that rescues and rehabilitates, orphaned or displaced Australian tree kangaroos for release back into the wild or for life in captivity as breeding animals for education and conservation in Zoos. They also wish to educate the public and increase awareness of Australian tree kangaroo conservation and the threats that bring them into care such as dogs and cars.
The Tree-Kangaroo and Mammal Group (TKMG) through membership and attendance at community meetings. TKMG is an incorporated community group based on the Atherton Tablelands in Far North Queensland, Australia, made up of local residents interested in, and concerned for, the conservation of North Queensland’s rich mammal fauna.
The School for Field Studies creates transformative study abroad experiences through field-based learning and research. Our educational programs explore the human and ecological dimensions of the complex environmental problems faced by our local partners, contributing to sustainable solutions in the places where we live and work. The SFS community is part of a growing network of individuals and institutions committed to environmental stewardship.Wildlife Habitat supports students with opportunities to work with various animal species in order to achieve their practical experience.
