Good News Flash!!!
We are holding a special market on the 5th Sunday of August and November to help raise funds for a much needed replacement of the Sanctuary ute. All proceeds from the '5th Sunday' markets will go toward being able to purchase a gently used ute for the Wildlife Sanctuary.
Ray Revill wants to share the reason behind the 5th Sunday Markets: "These extra markets are fund raisers so we can upgrade our ute, which is getting a bit long in the tooth now. So this will be the same as our normal markets, 7am start to 12 midday finish time.
So come along, one and all, and support us and the animals. Make a day of it and stay for a while. It is donation entry to market and sanctuary till 1 pm. See you all on Sunday."
The floods of 2012 and 2013 caused extensive damage to the fencing at the Fraser Coast Wildlife Sanctuary and some enclosures still need to be built or repaired.
The Sanctuary receives no direct government funding and simply relies on volunteers, corporate sponsorships, general sales and indirectly from government employment and training programmes.
We hope you will check out our WISH LIST and help, if you can! Donations can be monetary, items from the wish list, help with repair or building work and the sponsorship of any of our animals.
Thank you very much!
Thanks to the generosity of Richard Bennett and John Hampson from Koppers Wood Products, Takura, the original fence is being rebuilt. Koppers supplied some 160 treated posts and a team of workers towards the project.
This very generous contribution is greatly appreciated by all associated with the sanctuary and will benefit the community as a whole by enhancing the sanctuary as a tourist attraction and a place to spend quality family time.
With the two fences in place the open sanctuary area will be able to be better managed in that we will be able to spell areas in adverse seasons. Obviously the beneficiaries of this will be our animals.
