It has been an extremely rewarding period for the staff at the WLT and HSI, as the commitment of so many people to the protection of Australia’s precious wildlife and their habitats becomes clearer and clearer. It’s been just 5 months since the last edition of Wildlife Lands was published and yet the number of applicants wanting to join the Wildlife Land Trust network has rocketed, to the point where at the time of writing, there were 88 member sanctuaries covering a total of 14,187.1 hectares (35,057 acres) — an increase in membership of approximately 70% and area by almost 60% since our last issue! We are certainly optimistic about this trend continuing and hope to see the number of Australian sanctuaries pass the 100 milestone before the end of the year. The more committed sanctuary owners the better for Australian wildlife, and we thank all.
