New Homes Underway!

Thanks to our great volunteers for their efforts!

Our exciting project to help look after Tasmanian Devils has continued over recent weeks at the Bonorong Wildlife Park on the northern outskirts of Hobart in Tasmania.

With a focus on ensuring there is a healthy future for Tasmanian Devils, volunteers are helping to build holding pens for them. This is a long term project that will make a genuine contribution towards the preservation of this iconic Tasmanian creature, as well as other wildlife. For Tasmanian Devils in particular, the new enclosures will help keep healthy Devils safe and sound, and hopefully allow them to breed and increase the population. Alongside the Tassie Devil pens, and funded independently of our Global Giving project, our volunteers have also been building additional holding enclosures for native animals like wombats and quolls.

Both you and the volunteers have made a great contribution so far, and there is still plenty more to be done. We've added some pictures to show you our progress - and thank you again for your generous support of this important conservation project.
