This October we welcomed five new sanctuaries to the Wildlife Land Trust, bringing us to a total of 771 sanctuaries and over 78,700 hectares of wildlife-friendly land across Australia!

Among our newest sanctuaries is Arcadia Wildlife Sanctuary, set in an incredible spotted gum and ironbark forest and home to turtles, microbats, wallabies and eagles.

Rescued dingoes looking for a home

Our friends at WLT refuge Dingo Den sanctuary are looking for new homes for four rescued and rehabilitated dingoes, which cannot be released into the wild by law. Strength, Adina, Wanbi and Fern need forever homes in a quiet, rural setting, where they can live in peace and comfort.
