Help Peter at 82 years old, attempt a record-breaking sail around the world; solo, non-stop and unassisted to save koalas from extinction.

Peter’s amazing voyage – will be a fantastic achievement that will create many ocean sailing world records and will generate massive publicity around the world.

Our aim is to use the publicity to let the world know about the massive destruction of wildlife habitat and the rapid decline of koala population and raise funds for World Wildlife Sanctuaries to save our native wildlife from extinction.

Peter only needs $40,000 (Australian $) to get the campaign off the ground.

The $40,000 will be used to equip and make the yacht “Teena Marie” seaworthy for her voyage. After the yacht has completed campaigning for the koalas, she will be sold and the money will be paid to World Wildlife Sanctuaries for the koalas.

So right now, he’s urgently raising the $40,000 needed. 

Time is running out for koalas, so we need your help to raise the awareness and funds to make the difference.




The $40,000 will be used to:

  • Strengthen the yacht’s rigging
  • Acquire and fit an inner forestay
  • Acquire a new main sail, genoa and storm jib
  • Acquire safety equipment, including a Jordan series drogue
  • Acquire and fit additional navigational equipment
  • Acquire and fit an AIS system
  • Acquire and fit short and long range communication equipment
  • Acquire and fit solar panels
  • Acquire and fit a wind vane
  • Acquire a further bank of batteries and upgrade the electrical system
  • Acquire and fit a self steering system
  • Acquire a life raft and various safety equipment
  • Acquire and fit additional fuel storage
  • Acquire a radar and alarm system
  • Undertake modifications to the yacht, including watertight bulkheads
  • Acquire various other miscellaneous items

Time is running out. We must act now. But again, we can’t do it without the necessary funds. We need the funds desperately, so we can start putting the plan in motion NOW. Every donation counts.

You can help us make a difference today. Please help now. Please donate!

Frequently Asked Questions

All of the money raised by Sail 4 Wildlife will go back into World Wildlife Sanctuaries, the organisation founded by Peter Steele. From there, some of the funds will go towards ensuring Peter’s yacht, the Teena-Marie, is safe enough to sail around the world. A portion of the funds raised will be used to promote and market the event.

The majority will be used to buy land for koalas and other Australian wildlife. Once World Wildlife Sanctuaries purchases the land, we will need to turn it into a safe sanctuary, which means building fences and sowing native plants. Every cent contributed to Sail 4 Wildlife will be accounted for, and you will receive regular updates on our progress.

Peter sets sail on the first weekend of September, 2018. However, there will be several Sail 4 Wildlife fundraising events in the lead up and after the event. We’ll keep you up to date on social media, the Sail 4 Wildlife website and via email!

After the event, the Teena-Marie will be auctioned. All proceeds will return to World Wildlife Sanctuaries to buy and restore land for koalas and other Australian Wildlife. We’ll announce the time and place of the auction in 2018, and keep you updated!

We'd love to hear from you and see if we can include you in our fundraising or conservation efforts. Head to our website and follow the prompts on the 'Get Involved'page to register your interest. We’ll be in touch as soon as possible!

The Sail 4 Wildlife event is a subsidiary of World Wildlife Sanctuaries. The amount you contribute to Sail 4 Wildlife isn’t tax deductible, because we haven’t yet been listed as an official not-for-profit. If you have any questions about this before you contribute, please email info@sail4wildlife.com.au and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
