The Wildcare Tasmanian Nature Conservation Fund links the contributions of donors to important projects caring for the ‘wilds’ in Tasmania.  Nearly all projects are completed partly or in full, by volunteers who care deeply about Tasmania.  A $0 fee cut is applied to donations.  Wildcare Tasmania has made a values based decision to fully subsidise the operation of the Fund so 100% of donations are available for on-ground impact.

The Tasmanian Nature Conservation Fund Prospectus explains how the Fund is managed.

The 2021 Report to Donors provides details of recent projects enabled by donations.

Species that you can provide special help to

Large donations, bequests and ‘natural partnerships’

Large donations, bequests and ‘natural partnerships’ have enabled some truly significant legacy projects through Wildcare Tasmania, that will help protect wild regions and wildlife long term.

If you are an organisation looking to have a genuine environmental and social responsibility impact, then a Natural Partnership with Wildcare is a unique, grass-roots option that achieves both environmental benefits as well as social benefits, through bringing people together around a shared purpose.

If you would like to donate an amount above $10,000, make a bequest, or discuss natural partnership options, our CEO would love to speak to you personally.  Please email ceo@wildcaretas.org.au or phone 0361654149.

How your donation is managed

Wildcare  Tasmania is a not for profit charity that cares for wild places and wildlife in Tasmania, through our Tasmanian Nature Conservation Fund.  Most projects are value-added through the work of volunteers who work alongside land managers and other conservation organisations. 

We take great care to ensure that money goes towards projects that align to the cause as described on each donation page.  So if you donate to the Penguins cause for example, your money will go towards care of penguins and not something else.

Donations are managed in accordance with our status as a Registered Environmental Organisation.  Grant applications are invited from Wildcare volunteer groups and organisational partners, at a minimum twice per year to ensure that money is getting out onto the ground where needed.  

Applications are assessed by the Wildcare Grants Assessment Committee, who are a group of highly qualified people who are passionate about Tasmania’s wild places and wildlife and volunteer their time to assess applications.  

Donating from overseas

Our online system is configured to accept overseas donations and this hopefully should be a quick and painless process.  If for any reason you have any difficulties, please drop us an email at bookkeeper@wildcaretas.org.au
