In south-east Australia, 27 local species could disappear within the next decade without assistance.

These species are on the brink of extinction due to a range of threats. A lesser recognised but very real threat to these species is that Victorians do not know that they exist or how they can help.

The only thing more unjust than wildlife extinction, is the loss of a species that no one knew was in trouble.

In collaboration with recovery teams and experts from around Australia, Zoos Victoria has developed our second five-year Wildlife Conservation Master Plan which includes the plan to help fight for these brave little animals.

We're doing as much as the plan as we can, but we can’t do it alone.

You can help our most endangered local species by making a one-off donation or lend your ongoing support by becoming a Zoo Member.
