The Threatened Species Network (TSN) has a rich history of community-based conservation work. Unfortunately, the government funding that made this program possible is no longer available.


Going forward, WWF-Australia is committed to threatened species work, and is developing conservation programs for flagship species including marine turtles and threatened kangaroos and wallabies, as well as advocating for improved government policies that will benefit a much larger suite of threatened species.

Working with the community to stop plants and animals from disappearing is what the Threatened Species Network (TSN) was all about. TSN was a partnership between WWF-Australia and the Australian Government.

We have people on the ground right across Australia working with community groups and other conservation partners to help stop the declining numbers of our native plants and animals, particularly those listed by Australia's state and federal governments as threatened.

As Australia's leading species conservation program, with more than 15 years' experience, we bring together science with community needs, on-the-ground action with Australia's decision-makers, and national issues with local concerns to help protect threatened species.
