The Foundation for Australia's Most Endangered Species Limited (FAME) was established in 1993.

FAME is an independent, registered charity and a deductible gift recipient (DGR). A national organisation
incorporated as a public company limited by guarantee, FAME is registered with both the Australian Charities and
Not-for-profit Commission (ACNC).

Vision: Our vision is to prevent any further extinction of Australian flora and fauna.

Mission: FAME is one of the only organisation dedicated to helping Australian species most at risk of extinction. FAME seeks to fund on-ground conservation outcomes with a focus on seed funding and innovation.

Core Values:
Commit to conservation and environmental issues.
Embrace open transparency at all times.
Display strong, clear corporate governance.
Maintain inclusiveness with all stakeholder sand donors.
Respect the culture of Indigenous Australians.

At FAME we have come to believe that with your help, as our work progresses, whenever we restore a small piece of nature, we also restore ourselves as caretakers of the planet. Our work supporting projects to save Australia’s flora and fauna never ends – many species are under pressure and some face extinction.

FAME’s commitment to confront this reality has no boundaries, but our resources are always limited.

The Foundation’s projects are carefully chosen so that our precious funds are put to work in the most effective way possible. We do not gamble with the financial support of our members, Trusts, Foundations, corporate and grant funders, because we know that if we choose wisely we can buy the time that endangered Australian flora and fauna need to survive.

FAME believes that a partnership approach to saving endangered species is the best way to save wildlife. FAME works with like-minded organisations, governments, wildlife authorities and private landowners on projects that increase the likelihood of survival of one or more endangered species.
