About Us

Science for Wildlife is a not-for-profit wildlife conservation organisation based out of Sydney, Australia.

We work to make sure that the best available science and technology is applied on the ground where it counts, to conserve wildlife. We were established to meet a well-recognised need – to bridge the gap between research and wildlife conservation. Far too often the best science gets published in a journal paper but it stops there and is never applied to real-life wildlife management problems. Critical knowledge is therefore not available for use where it is needed most.

To bridge the implementation gap we work together with researchers and university staff and students, land managers, community groups and volunteers, making sure that experience and know-how are shared and wildlife conservation is as effective as it can possibly be.
