Donor statements:

Actor Hugo Weaving and his family made a gift in 2009 to support ISF’s research into the feasibility and impacts of the proposed Tillegra Dam in the Hunter Valley region. This contribution, which supplemented an equivalent contribution from The Wilderness Society Newcastle, made it possible for our researchers to carry out detailed research and analysis and produce several strategic reports that gave weight to the concerns about the proposed dam expressed by the community. 

‘The most striking aspect of this campaign has been the involvement of the local community. This has been important and enlightening, and I hope that we can keep the momentum going… ISF has been crucial in their role as independent advisers’
Hugo Weaving

A donation by Voiceless: The Animal Protection Institute supported Institute researchers to undertake an investigation into the factory farmed pork industry.

‘We have been pleased to work with ISF to ensure factory farming remains an issue for discussion across government, industry, community and academia. Voiceless has supported a number of projects at ISF and we continue to work closely with the team.’
