If you want to find a way to help animals in distress, whatever the cause, you can do so right here by taking the following actions. Also, don't forget to sign up for IFAW's action alerts to get all the news on the animals and issues you care about most.
IFAW's new report, Collision Course, shows how humpback whales, which come to the Great Barrier Reef to give birth and nurse their young, are at threat from giant, speeding cargo ships that crisscross their nurseries. Help us protect whales from these shipping superhighways by asking the federal government to limit ship speeds in these areas to give the whales the best chance to avoid deadly ship strikes.

Tourism can bring enormous benefit to local communities, people and animals. It can also do great harm to wildlife and the environment. So if you’re one of the growing number of Aussies travelling overseas for holidays each year, it’s important to consider your personal actions and decisions.
As part of our effort to protect animals from cruelty and commercial exploitation through tourism, IFAW has created the Responsible Traveller Pledge. We invite you to sign it now, to read more on how to be a wildlife aware traveller, and to help promote this cause by sharing this pledge with your friends through your social media.
