Corporations and Organisations

The Australia-Japan Wildlife Conservation and Education Foundation (AJWCEF) is a not-for-profit organization that was established under federal law in September 2009.

The AJWCEF strives to achieve a balance with the environment - that is, a better way for humans and nature to coexist - and we believe that education is a vital element in attaining this. Also important, is cooperation across national borders, and the AJWCEF seeks to develop wildlife conservation and education activities on the foundation of the ties that exist between Japan and Australia.

While conducting independent wildlife conservation and environmental protection activities as well as providing support for operations and facility maintenance and improvement of government facilities, the AJWCEF also supports grass-roots wildlife conservation activities by volunteers in Australia and Japan. The AJWCEF provides opportunities to Australians and Japanese to learn about the ecology of unique wildlife in Australia, particularly endangered species, and conservation activities to prompt consideration of "a better way for humans and nature to coexist." We will also contribute to furthering mutual understanding and the friendly relationship between Australia and Japan.

Therefore, we would ask that corporations and organizations, etc., that support this goal to contribute in any of the following forms as considered most appropriate-coorporate membership, donation, support for publicity activities, material support, etc. Corporations/organizations that provide assistance will be acknowledged as having done so in AJWCEF publicity activities, seminars, symposiums, study tours, training courses and international conferences, etc.

Membership is payable annually in units of 50,000 yen in Japan, and units of AU$600 in Australia.
