The continued loss of wildlife habitat worldwide is alarming for our threatened species and, with studies consistently concluding that a strong network of protected areas is an essential safeguard to such decline, private land conservation becomes even more important.  Fortunately, the Wildlife Land Trust (WLT) is gathering pace with 13 members joining since our last newsletter. These new sanctuaries in New South Wales, Queensland and Tasmania add a combined 433 hectares, taking the national count to 231 sanctuaries of about 35,829 hectares of wildlife-friendly land.
