Dreamworld works with a range of conservation partners to make a significant difference to support flora & fauna conservation, research and education in the wild.
The Phoenix Fund is a Russian wildlife and forest conservation organisation serving regions of the Russian Far East, especially Primorksi Krai and Khabarovsk Krai. This area includes globally significant biodiversity, including the Amur leopard, Siberian tiger and other predators. Some of the programs are anti-poaching activities, resolution of human tiger conflicts.
21st Century Tiger is a unique initiative which raises funds for wild tiger conservation projects and works closely with the sister organisation Amur Leopard and Tiger Alliance (ALTA). Established in 1997 it is one of the top 7 tiger funding agencies globally funding over 130 individual projects for 73 tiger projects in seven countries worldwide.

Dreamworld and DWF supports work with Trowunna Wildlife Park on Tasmanian Devils and Wombats. The Devil Facial Tumour Disease (DFTD) has decimated the wild population of Tasmanian devils. Through our conservation partnership we are deepening our understanding of husbandry and reproductive biology of these unique marsupials, critical to supporting animal management in the wild.
Dreamworld and DWF have had a long standing partnership with the University of Queensland in the area of research. This research has greatly improved the understanding of the koala reproductive cycle and has developed the word’s first artificial breeding technology to assist with bringing back genetic diversity into defragmented wild koala habitats in South East QLD.
DWF and the Environmental Futures Research Institute at Griffith University has been actively involved in numerous collaborative research projects that have focussed on the conservation of wildlife in Australia.
