International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) has joined forces with Science for Wildlife, a leading Australian not-for-profit wildlife conservation organisation, to raise awareness about wildlife conservation under climate change and activate volunteering opportunities for the venue's team.

ICC Sydney's CEO, Geoff Donaghy, said the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) partnership between ICC Sydney and Science for Wildlife will help protect koalas, listed as an endangered species: "We strive to make a difference in our world and leave a positive legacy against a triple bottom line—considering the ways we can foster community engagement, environmental sustainability and economic development.

The initiative will see the venue utilise its platform as an international event destination to promote the conservation group's programmes both internally to its team members and externally to its broad network. Science for Wildlife will provide learning, development and volunteering opportunities to ICC Sydney's team.

Science for Wildlife's executive director, Dr Kellie Leigh, said the organisation was pleased to welcome this new network into its fold through the partnership with ICC Sydney. "The conservation of wildlife and habitats can only be effective if communities join in, and by that I mean communities at the local level right through to the international level. If we don't work together, we simply can't be successful."
