    Donation Information:


    The Walkabout Wildlife Conservation Foundation was set up in 2013 to support Walkabout Park's conservation efforts. As at January 2019, the Foundation is in the process of applying for tax deductible gift status, so your donation is NOT tax deductable at this time. In the meantime, Donations will go directly to Walkabout Park. If this matters to you, please contact us in case we have an update on when the WWCF's tax deductable status will be achieved.

    Australia Walkabout Wildlife Park is proud to partner with the Walkabout Wildlife Conservation Foundation. WWCF was set up in 2013 to support Walkabout Park's conservation efforts.

    Did you know that Australia Walkabout Wildlife Park is the only natural bush indigenous animal sanctuary in New South Wales that also has magnificent ancient Aboriginal sites and is open year round with knowledgable rangers to show you around? Not only is it a place where visitors can experience natural Australia with friendly wildlife, but the team also works actively to breed endangered species for reintroduction into the wild to rebuild at-risk populations of animals.

    koala gumWalkabout Park has a highly successful bilby breeding program in New South Wales, working in collaboration with other institutions under the auspices of the Zoo & Aquarium Association on a nationwide breeding program. The program has bred more than 300 bilbies. These bilbies are released into one of five release sites across Queensland, South Australia and West Australia.

    Walkabout Park's Eastern Quoll breeding program is part of a national breed-for-release program driven by the team at "Devils at Cradle" in Tasmania. The Eastern Quoll is endangered, with the remaining wild population in Tasmania in dire straits. Similar to the Tasmanian Devil insurance population program (of which Walkabout Park is also a part) which is well established and achieving excellent outcomes, the Eastern Quoll needs a breed-for-release program to save it from extinction. The Devils at Cradle team have been doing a great job for many years now, but a coordinated approach across all of Australia is essential if we are to save the Eastern Quoll.

    Walkabout Park is a ZAA (previously ARAZPA) member taking part in the national program to create an insurance population of healthy Tasmanian Devil, free of the horrific Devil Facial Tumour Disease that is wiping out the wild population of Tasmanian devils. Walkabout Park has elected to play the role of retirement home for post breeder devils. Most zoos don't have space for non-breeding animals and want to focus on breeding cute joeys. However, the program is ahead of its quota to breed joeys and all participating zoos are struggling to house the devils which must be cared for in the long term as we build an insurance population suitable for release back into the wild when the time is right. Housing for non-breeding animals is therefore at a premium.

    In addition to active participation in breeding programs, Walkabout Park also provides conservation education to visitors and intern students, and teaches visitors Aboriginal lessons from the bush, helping to keep this ancient culture alive and relevant.
