Visit Australian Wildlife Conservancy's unique sanctuaries via this tour we developed with Google Earth. See the scope of the on-ground action AWC is taking to turn back the tide of extinctions for Australian wildlife. ***
AWC (www.australianwildlife.org) is an independent non-profit organisation dedicated to the conservation of Australia's threatened wildlife and habitats. We own 23 properties covering more than 3 million hectares. More than 67% of all Australian mammal species and over 80% of bird species are protected on the AWC estate.
Google Earth Outreach gives non-profits like AWC the resources to visualise their cause and tell their story in +Google Earth and +Google Maps.
*** Please also check out the other project AWC developed with Google Earth (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mSn2gv...), which visualizes the effects of high-intensity fires on Australia's savanna ecosystems and wildlife. It also shows the impact AWC's EcoFire initiative has had in reducing the extent of wildfires through practical, science-based fire management.
