Aussie Ark Sanctuary Opening

I was delighted to represent WIRES at the official opening of Aussie Ark's 400 hectare Barrington Wildlife Sanctuary on the 26th November 2020, to celebrate the opening with Aussie Ark President Tim Faulkner, Aussie Ark staff and other partners.

WIRES is supporting a major project with Aussie Ark to help protect 15 threatened species, and conservation programs like those being run by Aussie Ark are critical for their survival.

During the sanctuary opening it was wonderful to see threatened species released into the protected habitat at the sanctuary including; Eastern Quolls, Long-nosed Potoroos, Rufous Bettongs and Brush-tailed Rock-wallabies.
