Ian Gorrie is the owner of 'Muru Guran', a property located approximately 50km south of Bundaberg. The property is a dedicated wildlife sanctuary and it is Ian's intent for it to continue to be used for the benefit of the local environment. In 2012, the property was conserved in perpetuity by a legal covenant written on the title under the Vegetation Management Act 1999 (QLD) and it is also registered with Land for Wildlife.
Muru Guran covers 2.353 densely forested hectares with a small spring-fed creek. Vegetation is varied and includes rainforest, riparian habitat, wetlands and a wet and dry eucalypt forest.
The sanctuary is home to a wealth of birdlife, with the owner over many years identifying a total of 129 bird species so far, with the highest number of bird species identifed in just one week being 55. Wildlife known to inhabit Muru Guran includes three species of glider.
