The Tony & Lisette Lewis Foundation

The founders, the late

Mr A. C. (Tony) Lewis


Mrs Lisette Lewis

The Tony & Lisette Lewis Foundation was established in Australia by the late Tony Lewis and his wife Lisette by Deed of Trust and is registered as a non-profit charitable organisation.  It has been active since mid-2003.

Tony Lewis was born and educated in Sydney.  He and Lisette lived for many years in South Africa where they owned a private game reserve in the Sabi Sand which adjoins the well-known Kruger Park. They were closely involved in wildlife conservation in that country, and established a South African foundation with similar aims to the Australian one (The Lewis Foundation).  During their years in South Africa they maintained family links with Australia and their interest in Australian wildlife.

The Foundation's mission:

Supporting the propagation, preservation and protection of wildlife in Australia

and the conservation of its habitat

To further these objects, the Foundation administers its  WildlifeLink  program, with special emphasis on the acquisition and administration of wildlife sanctuaries, the primary care of wildlife, research projects, and educational programs to enhance community awareness of conservation in Australia.

The Foundation is managed by a Corporate Trustee with Board of Directors based in Sydney:

Stephen Austin, KC
