Kangaroo Island's Enigma Moth

In Search of the Enigma Moth, SA

  • YEAR: 2017
  • STATE: South Australia
  • FOCUS AREAS: Saving Species/SDG 15: Life on Land

Thanks to your support, the mysteries of a rare, newly discovered moth are being uncovered and the community are being engaged in conservation at the same time. Before, the community’s awareness of the value of insects was low. Now, light will be shed on the newly discovered Enigma Moth and it will raise awareness in the Kangaroo Island Community about the importance of insects in their local environment.

Malleefowl Conservation

Thanks to your support, conservation efforts for the vulnerable Malleefowl will receive a significant boost. The National Malleefowl Recovery Coordinator position will continue to be funded, to coordinate volunteers undertaking Mallefowl monitoring on 3 million hectares of private properties across four states. Before, there was no single, coordinated approach to Mallefowl conservation across the country. Now, Mallefowl have a better chance at increasing their numbers.
