Did you know :

  • Australia has the worst mammal extinction rate in the world with 30 native mammals  becoming extinct since European settlement.
  • Globally, 1 out of 3 mammal extinctions in the last 200 years have occurred in Australia.
  • More than 1,700 species of animals and plants are currently listed by the Australian Government as being at risk of extinction.
  • This is due mainly to loss of habitat through clearing of vegetation and the emergence of feral hunters – particularly cats.

SO WE’RE TRYING SOMETHING DIFFERENT TO HELP !

WOODiWiLD is establishing micro-forests on Aussie farms with funding from this simple on-line school fundraiser :

  • The school’s parents and supporters fund the planting of trees for $10 each and the school receives $2 for each tree planted.
  • We plant the trees with Aussie farmers and create the school’s micro-forest.
  • You receive a unique map reference for your tree and can follow the growth of the micro-forest on Google Maps on our website.
  • Combining all of the school micro-forests  will create The Great Aussie Schools’ Forest – a patchwork of new habitat for our threatened species – see the map below.
