The Endangered Species Conservation facility manages a number of captive breeding programs and partners with Government authorities, universities and zoological institutions to conduct vital research on Australian wildlife.

The facility focuses on threatened species, particularly the Bridled Nailtail Wallaby and Northern and Southern Hairy-nosed Wombats. The facility is the only captive breeding facility for Bridled Nailtail Wallabies in the world.

The centre also provides medical care for injured, sick and orphaned wildlife through its rescue and rehabilitation program. Animals are nursed back to health with the goal of being well enough to be released back into the wild. The facility also supports other wildlife carers who assist with this dedicated work.

The centre delivers a range of wildlife education programs to enable local community groups, industry bodies, school groups and individuals to be actively involved in the conservation of native animals. The programs highlight the importance of maintaining a healthy natural environment to ensure the well-being of our native species.

The facility welcomes students and volunteers from all over the world to learn about Australian wildlife and contribute to the breeding, research and education programs. 

Your Contribution

As a not for profit organisation, the facility relies on financial support from grants, fundraising, donations and membership fees. Volunteer fees contribute to the cost of food, water and utilities such as electricity.

Volunteers will be contributing to the survival of endangered species that are found nowhere else in the world. Volunteers will help to support animals who require intensive care in order to be rehabilitated and released back into the wild.
