  • Borneo Orangutan Survival is a volunteer organisation that works to save the orangutans - only about 50,000 are left in the wild - by rescuing and rehabilitating them, with an ultimate goal of releasing them back to the forest where they will be safe from human development, poaching and farming.
  • CASE for Refugees is a not for profit community legal centre that provides free legal advice, representation and advocacy to refugees, humanitarian visa holders and people from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse backgrounds in WA.
  • Conservation Council of WA is WA's foremost non-profit, non-government conservation organisation. With over 100 member groups CCWA has been an outspoken advocate for conservation and a sustainable WA for over 40 years.
  • Northey Street City Farm works to create a working model of a cooperative, community based urban permaculture farm which demonstrates, promotes, educates and advocates for environmental and economic sustainability in a healthy, diverse and supportive community. More than 1500 exotic and native fruit trees, bushtucker plants, shrubs and ground covers have been planted on the four hectare farm site since its inception in April 1994.
