NSW: Scotshire Farm - Scott and Shireen Moretto

 

Scott and Shireen Moretto are the owners of Scotshire Farm, a property located in Leeton, approximately 120km northwest of Wagga Wagga, NSW. The property is a residence and dedicated wildlife sanctuary, and also houses two donkeys and a horse. Scott and Shireen intend to continue maintaining the property as a wildlife refuge by preserving the native habitat present.

The sanctuary covers approximately 0.93 hectares of arid land bordered on all sides by livestock exclusion fences. Originally a barren landscape, the property now features approximately 200 eucalypts and emerging native grasses. Above-ground ponds have also been placed on the property to supply water for wildlife.
