Wildlife Land Trust / Sanctuaries / NSW / Grace for Wildlife

Caroline Ceylon Bugden is the owner of a Grace for Wildlife, a wildlife sanctuary located in Yellow Pinch, approximately 8km northwest of Merimbula, New South Wales. The future intentions of the owner are to keep it as a conservation property. 

The property covers approximately 41 hectares of bush with a creek running through and large pond of water. The sanctuary is adjacent to crown land, council land and Bourda Nature Reserve which is part of Bourda National Park. The property’s water source is important in drought for wildlife passing from the nearby South East National Park. The property also used to be part of the small animal sanctuary ‘Potoroo Palace’. Vegetation on the property largely consists of mature native trees such as yellow stringy bark (Eucalyptus muelleriana), bloodwood (Corymbia gummifera) and other large eucalyptus. A range of wildlife is found on the property including eastern grey kangaroos (Macropus giganteus), wallabies and snakes.
