Together, we can make a difference. Our projects at FAME focus on partnerships with community organisations, government agencies and private stakeholders that we view as having a high chance of success, and a tangible impact on conservation.Australia’s most endangered species are in cri...
The Red-tailed Phascogale is a small carnivorous marsupial, measuring around 10cm long and weighing only 60g. It is one of the three members of the phascogale genus. It has sadly disappeared from much of its historic range across Australia.
Weighing less than a kilogram and featuring a pointed muzzle and sticky tongue, Numbats are capable of vacuuming up 20,000 termites a day. Once widespread across southern Australia, the species remains in several small colonies in Western Australia.
The Eastern quoll (Dasyurus viverrinus) is one of Australia’s four quoll species - a marsupial predator closely related to the Tasmanian Devil. Slightly smaller than your average house cat, they play a critical role in the ecosystems they inhabit by preying on a variety of smaller anima...
Islands harbour some of the world’s most unique, biodiverse ecosystems, and Kangaroo Island in South Australia is no exception.
Plant species across Australia are under increasing pressure, and it is vital that we limit losses to save wider ecosystems upon which other plants, animals and humans depend.
Invasive species have played a major role in dozens of extinctions in Australia. One such species is the Cane Toad, with numbers now in the hundreds of millions from Far North Queensland across to Western Australia.
The Western Quoll and Red-Tailed Phascogale are carnivorous marsupials native to South Australia and, as predators, have important roles to play in the health of the ecosystem. Sadly, both species were wiped out by a combination of invasive predators and extensive land clearing.
The Tasmanian Devil is the world's largest surviving marsupial carnivore, with a unique jaw and tooth structure allowing them to consume bones and fur, meaning they play a critical role in the ecosystem as both top-order predators and scavengers.
