Fences are up, citizen science training is underway, the ferals have been removed – now for the party! Balijup Sanctuary, Friday 22nd May at 2pm. Anyone who can get there is invited to the official Launch of Balijup Sanctuary - 707 Nunijup Road (7km south west of Tenterden off the Albany Highway). Your chance for a tour of the Sanctuary, talks and afternoon tea back at the homestead (aka Field Station and Study Centre). “The Sanctuary is a significant step forward for conservation in Gondwana Link. We know that the Quenda and other marsupials are really under the hammer due to feral animals. The Sanctuary gives them a chance to build up numbers so we can reintroduce Quenda successfully into other areas protected from ferals,” says Basil Schur from Green Skills. Our congratulations to Basil and owner Alan Hordacre for the imagination and energy.
