Supporting the Australian Wildlife Conservancy

Supporting the Australian Wildlife Conservancy

Do you want to do good, while drinking good? If you can excuse the basic grammatical error and have answered yes, then read on…

This Christmas season here at the Wine Importers we will be turning our philanthropic efforts towards an Australian charity that has been working hard to support native Australian flora and fauna. 

Australian Wildlife Conservancy’s story began on August 2, 1991 when Martin Copley purchased Karakamia Wildlife Sanctuary in Western Australia. It has since grown to become the largest private owner and manager of land for conservation in Australia, delivering and influencing effective conservation across more than 12.9 million hectares across sanctuaries and partnership sites in iconic regions of Australia. A picture of their 44km cat-proof fence is above. 

Through this network of large-scale wildlife sanctuaries in remote and iconic regions, such as the Kimberley, Cape York, central Australia and the Top End, they protect some of the nation’s most iconic and endangered wildlife including:

  • 74 per cent of native mammal species (215 species)

  • 88 per cent of native bird species (546 species)

  • 54 per cent of reptile species (555 species)

  • 56 per cent of amphibian species (133 species)

So how are we supporting? The Wine Importers will be donating 10% of all sales made through our website to this great charity. So, once again I ask you: do you want to do good, while drinking good?
