Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary is a refuge for injured, orphaned or sick native Tasmanian wildlife. They play a crucial role in providing care and rehabilitation and are run by a group of dedicated vets, nurses and volunteers. Their 24–hour emergency service is a lifeline for our native species.
In 2018 Bonorong opened Tasmania's first Wildlife Hospital, a facility that provides safety and care to over 6000 sick and injured animals every year. At Tasmanian Walking Company, we are passionate about the natural environment and the animals that reside within it. We are continually focused on conserving and minimising our impact on the natural environment.
"We've got a responsibility to give back to these animals that have come second to us for so many years..."
Greg Irons, Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary
*For every donation, we'll match it dollar for dollar!
We get so much out of our ongoing relationship with Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary, each year, our Tasmanian Walking Company guides collaborate with Bonorong and undergo interpretation training. This involves upskilling and learning the ins and outs of wildlife conservation and rescue, including how to care for injured and sick animals at home and on the track. We are so fortunate to be able to share the natural environment and exist harmoniously within it with an array of Tasmanian wildlife species.
