Australian Wildlife Week

Held During the First Week of October Each Year

Australian Wildlife Week 2024

Australian Wildlife Week, established by the Society in 2019, is celebrated nationally during the first week of October each year (Tuesday, 1 October to Sunday, 6 October 2024) to encourage a positive relationship between humanity and nature.  

This year, we are hosting an Online Webinar and Art Exhibition to celebrate Australian Wildlife Week and inspire community members to

implement conservation actions to protect native flora and fauna and conserve natural habitats for future generations. 

Online Webinar

Online webinar: TBA (AEST).  

The webinar will showcase wildlife research and conservation projects across Australia. Several keynote speakers will provide an overview of their projects. We will also be joined by several of the Society’s 2024 University Research Grant winners, who will summarise their research and the importance of protecting Australian wildlife.

Art Exhibition

The Society will host an Art Display titled Australian Wildlife: A Journey Through Time at the Museum of the Riverina in Wagga Wagga in October 2024.

The exhibition aims to raise awareness of the importance of conserving Australia’s native wildlife. It takes the viewer on a journey through time, featuring some of the Society’s critical projects from its inception in 1909 to today. 

We encourage community members to visit the exhibition and take action to preserve Australia’s precious wildlife and natural ecosystems.
