Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors Worldwide
Who are we?
“The single biggest threat to our planet is the destruction of habitat and along the way the loss of precious wildlife. We need to reach a balance where people, habitat and wildlife can co-exist - if we don't everyone loses… one day”
Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors is a not-for-profit organisation that was founded by Steve and Terri Irwin in 2002. Their aim was to encourage more people to join them in the care and protection of wildlife around the world. They believed if one animal could be saved, an entire species could be saved.
