Program Overview

Program Description:

Every year, hundreds of thousands of native animals are injured, orphaned or become sick, often because of interaction with people or pets. This wildlife shelter in country Australia is one of the largest unsupported privately owned wildlife shelters in Australia and for more than 30 years, it has rescued and rehabilitated sick, injured and orphaned native Australian wildlife and loved them back to health to be returned to the natural environment. Since it receives no recurrent funding from governments, the shelter relies on the contribution of volunteers and donations from the public to keep it running.

Setting Description:
The shelter is located in Stanley State Forest, a beautifully preserved natural bush land overflowing with lush, green vegetation and magnificent wildlife. Rich in history and in natural resources (granite, gold, clay & sparkling spring water), this thriving region is built upon the solid values and vision of its pioneers and miners. Home to many talented artists and artisans from around the world, it is brimming with arts, crafts & antiques and has earned an impressive reputation for its spectacular annual festivals and events.
Cost:
830 USD.
