A residence, wildlife sanctuary and rehabilitation site

Description

Roanna Horbelt is the owner of Left Field Farm, a property located on the north coast of Kangaroo Island. The property is a dedicated wildlife sanctuary and a residence, primarily used for wildlife rehabilitation and release. Left Field Farm is a sanctuary for orphaned, abandoned and injured animals. It is Roanna's intent for the property to continue to be used for these purposes.

Left Field Farm covers 40.5 hectares of native bushland. Vegetation consists of more than 100 native species of bush, scrub and grasses including she-oaks (Casuarina spp.), sugar (Eucalyptus cladocalyx), pink (E. leucoxylon ssp.) and manna (E. viminalis) gums and yaccas (Xanthorrhoea australis). In 2015, Roanna planted 2,700 trees – mostly she-oaks – as part of the Glossy Black Cockatoo Project.

Wildlife species known to inhabit the sanctuary include approximately fifty glossy black cockatoos (Calyptorhynchus lathami), western grey kangaroos (Macropus fuliginosus spp.), tammar wallabies (M. eugenii), brushtail (Trichosurus vulpecula) and ringtail possums (Pseudocheirus peregrinus), short-beaked echidnas (Tachyglossus aculeatus), Rosenberg's goannas (Varanus rosenbergi), wedge-tailed (Aquila audax) and white-bellied sea eagles (Haliaeetus leucogaster), bush stone-curlews (Burhinus grallarius), tiger snakes (Notechis scutatus), marron (Cherax cainii), koalas (Phascolarctos cinereus), falcons (Falco spp.), nankeen kestrels (F. enchroides) black-shouldered kites (Elanus axillaris) and many more bird species. Left Field Farm is also refuge for six brumbies, two orphaned cows, four alpacas and more than twenty sheep.
