Nangak Tamboree Wildlife Sanctuary

Tuesday, 9 April 2024 - 5:00pm
Nangak Tamboree Wildlife Sanctuary La Trobe Ave, Bundoora
Wurundjeri and Boon Wurrung Country

Come and help us monitor the arboreal mammals, birds and bats that utilise the nest boxes and natural tree hollows throughout the Nangak Tamboree Wildlife Sanctuary.

It's easy! Each volunteer will be allocated a tree or ‘stag’ to watch for one hour at sunset and will record any animals they observe emerging or entering nest boxes and hollows. This valuable data helps our biodiversity staff to monitor native animal populations, nest box usage and peak activity times in the Sanctuary.

Registrations are essential and numbers are limited.

Nangak Tamboree Wildlife Sanctuary

Nangak Tamboree (nan-nyack tam-bor-ee) means respecting, sharing and looking after the waterway in Woiwurrung language of the Wurundjeri people.

The Nangak Tamboree Wildlife Sanctuary was created in 1967 as a project in the restoration and management of indigenous flora and fauna. It has now evolved to now be a high biodiversity node within the Nangak Tamboree Eco-Corridor. This eco-corridor connects the Sanctuary from the Gresswell Habitat Link and Gresswell Forest to our north, through the La Trobe University Bundoora campus to Darebin Creek in the south.

This regenerated bushland environment is used for conservation, education and research activities that support the learning and teaching objectives of La Trobe University and it's surrounding schools. We also provide an array of community events and volunteering opportunities for those interested in the conservation of indigenous flora and fauna at the Wildlife Sanctuary.
