Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors Worldwide was established in 2002, by Steve and Terri Irwin as a way to include and involve other caring people in the protection of injured, threatened or endangered wildlife from the individual animal to an entire species.
It is our mission to be the most effective wildlife conservation organisation in the world through the delivery of outstanding outcome-based programs and projects, inclusive of humanity.
It is with this mission that Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors carries on the legacy of Steve Irwin by conducting wildlife conservation projects within Australia and around the world including; the Australia Wildlife Hospital, Tiger 511 in Sumatra, elephant conservation in Sumatra and Cambodia, orang-utan conservation in Sumatra, Tasmanian devil conservation, rhinoceros conservation in Kenya and cheetah conservation in South Africa as well as grey nurse shark research and conservation locally. Our biggest research project in Australia is the longest and most comprehensive study in existence on the saltwater crocodile.
Wildlife Warrior’s major sponsor, Australia Zoo, gives vital support to Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors by covering all administration costs and by providing other essential support where necessary. This means that 100% of all donations to the charity can be applied directly to where they are needed most, making an immediate impact in the world of wildlife conservation.
