Our wonderful guests' generosity gives local wildlife a helpful hand

With the help of our guests we’ve made further donations in the first half of 2016 to local wildlife to help ‘Crystal’
and friends have a safe start to life.

Crystal is a baby orphaned wombat which we sponsor and along with other wombats who are cared for by Wisdom Wombats Refuge’s Lyn Orbern in Kangaroo Valley. Many are found as the result of road accidents inside their mother’s pouch (see wildlife rescue video below). Lyn and husband Paul rescue the infants and nurse them through their formative years before releasing into the wild. Our contribution goes towards food and veterinary costs. "From when you brought Crystal into us she has grown from strength to strength and loves to play with her friends here at the refuge,” says Lyn. Wisdom Wombat Refuge needs donations to cover milk and feed, and vet costs as they get no government support. To donate see link below and mention Wisdom Wombat Refuge Kangaroo Valley as the reference.

We also support a second wildlife charity, Friends of the Bush-Tailed Rock-Wallaby where our donations go directly towards research and eradicating foxes to help build numbers of this threatened native animal. There are only 40 left between Sydney and the Victorian boarder and all reside here in Kangaroo Valley!

With the generous donations from guests and resources saving from our cottages we donated $554 (January-June 2016). This was made possible by guests choosing to use fewer resources which saved 363.902 kWh of electricity, 18 kg of LPG and 8,061 litres of water and the equivalent of 383 kg less CO2 to the atmosphere.

Guests who stay with us are given details of where to see native wildlife in their natural environment and can learn more about our chosen local wildlife charities.

To celebrate this wonderful news you're invited to explore Kangaroo Valley with our Go Wild package – enjoy a two night stay plus either kayaking or horse riding package - and we'll donate 5% of your accommodation tariff to Wisdom Wildlife Refuge. Details below
