Dreamworld Wildlife Foundation (DWF) was established in 2012 to provide support, practical assistance and funding for wildlife conservation initiatives, particularly relating to the ecology of threatened and endangered species. DWF is approved under its constitution to support direct conservation efforts, relevant research, public education, advocacy and co-operation with like-minded organisations and regulatory authorities to protect wildlife.
DWF has partnered with the Zoological Society of London and the Global Tiger Patrol to establish and promote the pre-eminent global tiger conservation charity, 21st Century Tiger. Through its relationships with 21st Century Tiger and other charities, DWF is able to actively help to protect tigers in the wild with education, anti-poaching and community engagement initiatives. DWF is the largest zoological donor to tiger conservation in the world.
DWF is internationally known for its work supporting tiger conservation in the wild, with our involvement in not only tiger conservation but the protection and conservation of our own native Australian endangered species.
The fragility of the environment, disease and the ongoing impact of introduced species in Australia have left a number of unique endemic animals on the endangered species list. DWF supports research, habitat conservation and education for wildlife such as; Koalas, Bilbies, Tree Kangaroos, Wombats, Tasmanian Devils, Frogs and Bristlebirds.
Since being established in 2012, DWF has received public donations of over $1.5 million. These donations are largely linked to activities within the Dreamworld Theme Park business of the Ardent Leisure Group. Donations from royalties from merchandise sales and wildlife activities within the theme park, supplemented by public donations received through bequests, a workplace giving program, website and in-park donation boxes have all contributed to this donation stream.
The wildlife on display at Dreamworld are ambassadors for their wild cousins. Without getting up close and personal to these amazing creatures, DWF could not possibly generate the donations that we need to achieve our goals.
