Orphaned and injured animals are rehabilitated at Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary
Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary (pronounced “Bon-a-rong” an Aboriginal word meaning “Native Companion”) was established in 1981 as a sanctuary for injured and orphaned wildlife. Their work centres around helping protect native Australian wildlife. Their aim is to help save, rehabilitate and release injured animals. All of Bonorong’s ‘residents’ undergo meticulous assessments to ensure they are healthy and happy in their care.
Australia has the highest number of mammal extinctions in the last 200 years and at Bonorong they are determined to make sure these amazing animals don’t join that list. The sanctuary provides homes for many native species including golden possums, potoroos and emus to the brilliant spotted-tailed quolls, wombats and echidnas. They take in orphaned and injured animals and their aim is always to see them happily released back into the bush as soon as they have recovered. Bonorong has been a successful breeding site for Tasmanian devils for well over twenty years.
