The Australian Wildlife Conservancy offers ecology and conservation internships. The internships are for biology graduates to work in the field on one of the AWC’s sanctuaries. Our funding ensured two graduates were placed on sanctuaries and had the opportunity to work with talented researchers and scientists to broaden their skills and experience. AWC continues to run this program and would be interested to hear from any donors who would like to fund an intern. http://www.australianwildlife.org
The Foundation has a Leadership Development Grant Program and our first grant recipient was Anthony Gallacher from the Loddon Plains Landcare Network. Anthony coordinates the GOANNA landscape restoration project in north central Victoria. The $5,000 grant will assist Anthony with professional development – courses, workshops, travel and equipment. This will not only give Anthony skills to do his job well, but will also hopefully help him develop into a leader in the field of landscape restoration.
