Moonlit Sanctuary wins Protection of Environment award!

 31st May 2009


Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park is extremely honoured to have won the Protection of the Environment Award in the Keep Australia Beautiful Sustainable Cities awards. The awards were presented at a ceremony last Friday night in Melbourne.

The award recognises ?outstanding achievement in the protection of the natural environment with particular focus on the preservation of native fauna and flora?.

Judges commended the Sanctuary?s aim to display the fauna that was found in the Mornington Peninsula and Western Port Biosphere Reserve prior to European settlement, and were particularly impressed with our evening walks, where visitors get close to many unusual and endangered native animals, and learn about them in an entertaining way.


It was gratifying to receive the award as an acknowledgement of our work with endangered species, our education programs, and the efforts we have made with revegetation and implementation of sustainable practices in management of the Sanctuary. It was also an honour for an organisation operating without government support to be given the award.


Moonlit Sanctuary was opened in 2001, and is located at Pearcedale at the top of Melbourne?s Mornington Peninsula.
