Dreamworld Wildlife Foundation (DWF) was established in 2012 to provide support, practical assistance and funding for wildlife conservation initiatives, particularly the ecology of threatened and endangered species. We support direct conservation efforts, relevant research, public education, advocacy and co-operation with like-minded organisations and regulatory authorities to protect wildlife.
DWF is the largest zoological donor to tiger conservation in the world. Through our relationships with other pre-eminent conservation charities, we actively help protect tigers in the wild with education, anti-poaching and community engagement initiatives.
We are also known internationally for 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 and Tree Kangaroos.
Since being established in 2012, DWF has generously received public donations of over $2 million. These donations are largely linked to activities within Dreamworld from royalties on merchandise sales and wildlife activities, supplemented by bequests and donations made online and in-park. DWF additionally receives funds from external partners, such as international zoos.
The wildlife on display at Dreamworld are ambassadors for their wild cousins. Without getting up close and personal to these amazing animals, DWF could not possibly generate the donations that we need to achieve our goals.
