Gregory Andrews, the Australian Threatened Species Commissioner recently opened Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park's new wombat exhibit.

The exhibit houses southern hairy nosed wombats, and uses a unique design, with a revolutionary and innovatice new fencing system allowing the enclosure to become the world's larget wombat enclosure without interfering with any tree roots and water drainage. The exhibit also has great public viewing areas, and visitors are almost assured they will see a wombat going about it’s business.

During his visit, Mr. Andrews also viewed other breeding programs at Moonlit Sanctuary including for the critically endangered orange-bellied parrot. He later tweeted: “Thanks Michael and Lisa @ Moonlit Sanctuary for your generosity and efforts in saving Australia’s orange-bellied parrot”. An effort well worth tweeting about!

Ecotourism Australia also congratulates Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park for winning the Tourism Award for the Casey Cardinia Regional Business Awards 2015 and being a runner up for Business of the Year! Very well-deserved!
