Australian Ecosystems Foundation


The AEFI Management Committee is made up of a variety of industry representatives including conservation biologists, tourist operators, research scientists, accountants, public servants, Indigenous teachers, farmers and business executives. This combination allows AEFI to manage its reserves and wildlife with a broad range of experiences, skills and knowledge on hand.


We manage or assist in the management of important habitats to ensure that the wildlife within is protected. We are involved in the management of over 3000 hectares of land as well as conducting research and captive breeding to improve the future for Australian endangered wildlife.


We currently reach thousands of Australians and internationals who want to help save Australian wildlife, and our reach is rapidly building. With your help, we will continue grow and protect endangered ecosystems and wildlife across Australia.


We work with a range of partners to educate, inform and conserve. This includes government agencies, universities, and volunteer and community groups. By working together with other organisations we can share expertise and resources to increase the effectiveness of our conservation work, and it’s sustainability.

Zoo and Aquarium Association


The Zoo and Aquarium Association is the peak body representing the zoo and aquarium community throughout Australasia. The Association has 99 member organisations; 94 of these are zoos, aquariums and museums with the remainder consisting of universities, TAFEs and government departments.


The Association manages the coordination of breeding programs and sets the level of professional standards and practice for its members. It also provides general support and advice where required to its members and governments on a range of issues such as biosecurity, wildlife disease and species knowledge.


Our members engage over 17 million visitors and provide education to over 600,000 students each year. They run a plethora of conservation projects at home and overseas. In addition they provide an essential service through their wildlife hospitals. Most importantly they look after their animal collections which include over 1,200 vertebrate species. The Association aims to enhance these activities by enabling and facilitating collaboration across the membership.


The Association is a member of the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA), where we are able to collaborate with 1,300 other zoos and aquariums linked through the WAZA network. Collectively we seek to contribute to conservation science, animal husbandry and animal welfare.

In 2006, American traveller Blake Mycoskie befriended children in a village in Argentina and found they had no shoes to protect their feet. Wanting to help, he created TOMS, a company that would match every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes given to a child in need. One for One.®


Realizing that One for One could serve other global needs, Blake launched TOMS Eyewear in 2011 to help restore sight to persons in need with every purchase of sunglasses and optical frames. In 2014, TOMS Roasting Co. launched with the mission to provide clean water to developing communities with the purchase of premium coffee.


TOMS is in business to help improve lives. We identify a global need and create products to help address them. This simple idea is what makes us more than a company – we’re a movement that’s continually evolving.
