GWC targets species and habitats in this region that have fallen through the gaps - from New Guinea frogs to the Tasmanian Devil.

Australasia, with remote islands, lush rainforests, and many unexplored areas, is a key region for GWC. There are sill many species and habitats without adequate conservation action, and we are working with local partners in both developing and developed countries to protect unique biodiversity.

Priority species GWC is working to save

The Wildlife Conservation Society, with help from GWC, led a survey of the Hindenburg Wall in the Star Mountains of Papua New Guinea in 2013. This survey was conducted in a previously unexplored part of this tropical island. The island is experiencing an increasing amount of extraction of resources, from mines such as copper to forestry, making an accurate inventory a priority for conservation efforts.
