About us

Australian Wildlife Conservancy (AWC) is the largest private (non-profit) owner of land for conservation in Australia, protecting threatened wildlife across a vast 6.5 million hectares in iconic regions such as the Kimberley, Cape York, the Top End and Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre.

AWC is transforming conservation on the ground by deploying a practical, science-based model for conservation — one that is successfully halting the decline of Australia’s threatened wildlife and restoring our unique biodiversity.

With 1,800 animals and plants now threatened with extinction there is a real urgency to do more. We have ambitious plans to secure the future of Australia’s biodiversity and we are now expanding our fundraising team to help us achieve our vision.

About you

Reporting to the Fundraising Manager, the Telephone Fundraiser will engage with our existing and potential supporters, thanking them for their support and inspiring them to help fund AWC’s mission and vision.
