This month we've welcomed four new sanctuaries to our network, three from South Australia! With these additions to the Wildlife Land Trust now consists of 539 members spanning over 63,530 hectares.

Among these is Mallyon's on the Murray, a fantastic retreat on the banks of the Murray River that is home to southern hairy-nosed wombats, wedge-tailed eagles and red kangaroos.

Conservation News

We've just returned from the annual Australian Wildlife Rehabilitation Conference (AWRC), which was held in Sydney this year. We had a great time catching up with WLT members as well as leading researchers, conservationists and wildlife carers.  It was also a great opportunity for us to spread the word about the Wildlife Land Trust and learn about fantastic new ideas in the Australian wildlife caring community!

New Features

We're excited to introduce Featured Sanctuaries, our new initiative taking an in-depth look at notable WLT sanctuaries. British conservationist Hannah Mulvany is currently travelling across Australia, and will be visiting WLT sanctuaries to learn more about the people, habitats and (of course) wildlife which makes them special. We'll be announcing new sanctuary features over Facebook and Twitter, but you can also head over to our Featured Sanctuaries page to check them out ahead of the crowd.

Programs and Partnerships

This month the WLT also partnered up with the Gideways K2W program, an initiative dedicated to restoring the wildlife corridor in the Kanangra-Boyd to Wyangala region of NSW. This area supports vital habitat for quolls, koalas and platypus, as well as providing an important habitat link for five of the six glider species in Australia. Promoting private land conservation is a great way to kickstart this initiative, so we're working hard to raise awareness and recruit new members in this region.
