Together For Wildlife

Together For Wildlife (T4W) is dedicated to raising funds for much needed wildlife rescue and conservation organisations. We encourage people to donate funds and select the charity and wildlife they wish to give to.

About T4W

Introduction

Together For Wildlife (T4W) is a part of the Judith Eardley Save Wildlife Association. After 18 years of working as a charity shop we decided to focus upon acquiring funds online for wildlife.

To finance the cost of promoting Together For Wildlife we have established a commercial operation selling books, records and collectibles at Bay 11 the Yarra Glen Antique Centre. Consequently, every dollar received by Together For Wildlife will be directly donated to organisations working to save wildlife. They in turn will show online that they have spent every dollar received on the proposal for which they requested funds. Thus there will be 100% transparency such that donators can see exactly how their donations have been spent.

Membership

The charity is based on membership.
Adults $10 per annum.
Students and children Five dollars per annum.
Families $20 per annum.
Organisations and schools $10.
We encourage members to actively persuade other members to join.

Choice

All members are asked to choose the charity they would like to support. For people who wish to donate but refrain from membership there is an anonymous pot. Together For Wildlife will over time set up fundraisers and those funds will also go into the anonymous pot. Once a year members will be asked to vote where the anonymous pot money goes to. If people wish to vote for more than one charity they can do so but must donate in multiples of $10.

A possible future

It is hoped that T4W can be established such that no one can say “I am concerned about wildlife and the environment but I am only one person, what can I do?”. The analogy suitable for T4W is towards an avalanche of help for wildlife.
The early members will act as if to throw $10 stones on a mountain side. As they aggregate, eventually a trickle will form, then a stream and later a cascade. With good fortune, intentions and actions, an avalanche of help for wildlife will form as long as we have the collective will to make it happen. By many people coming together we should indeed make it happen.

Discounts for members

We hope with in the Yarra Valley a good number of businesses will join on condition they provide discounts for members of T4W. This could make it an economic advantage to be a member of T4W.

There’s a thin green line

Tenkile Tree Kangaroo

The tenkile, also known as Scott’s tree-kangaroo, is a species of tree-kangaroo in the family Macropodidae. It is endemic to a very small area of the Torricelli Mountains of Papua New Guinea. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical dry forests. It is threatened by habitat loss and by hunting.

Helmeted Honeyeater

The helmeted honeyeater is a distinctive and critically endangered subspecies of the yellow-tufted honeyeater. It exists in the wild only as a tiny relict population in Victoria, in the Yellingbo Nature Conservation Reserve east of Melbourne. It is Victoria’s only endemic bird.

Koalas, Possums, Birds & Other Wildlife

Animalia Wildlife Shelter & Rescue cares for and rehabilitates sick, injured and orphaned wildlife. It currently operates in Frankston in Victoria but assists right across Victoria with wildlife issues.

Asiatic Moon Bear

The Asian black bear, also known as the moon bear and the white-chested bear, is a medium-sized bear species native to Asia and largely adapted to life in trees. It is classified as vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), mostly because of deforestation and hunting for its body parts.

Queensland Dingo

Dingoes play an important role as an apex predator, keeping natural systems in balance. A healthy Dingo population is good for small to medium-sized mammals (and reptiles and birds) because Dingoes suppress feral predators (cats and foxes) through direct predation and indirect interference (cats and foxes avoid them).

Leadbeater’s Possum

The Leadbeater’s possum is a critically endangered nocturnal possum largely restricted to small pockets of alpine ash, mountain ash, and snow gum forests in the Central Highlands of Victoria, Australia, north-east of Melbourne. There is a small, distinct population of lowland possums at the Yellingbo Nature Conservation Reserve. Leadbeater’s possum is endemic to Victoria and is the faunal emblem of Victoria.
