Wildlife Land Trust / Sanctuaries / SA / Kooroo

Elizabeth and Norm Crittenden are the owners of Kooroo, a property situated in Willunga Hill, approximately 50km south of Adelaide, South Australia. The property is a wildlife sanctuary, also used for cattle grazing and to house free range chickens. Liz and Norm are working to revegetate the scrub on the block and are establishing a wildlife corridor to neighbouring properties. They wish to encourage wildlife to coexist on the property and plan to rejuvenate the native vegetation to provide habitat for resident species.

Kooroo spans 8 hectares across pasture and native scrub, with some eucalypt woodland and several pine trees surrounding the homestead.

A wide range of wildlife is present on the block including western grey kangaroos (Macropus fuliginosus), short-beaked echidnas (Tachyglossus aculeatus), eastern brown (Pseudonaja textilis) and red-bellied black (Pseudechis porphyriacus) snakes, shingleback lizards (Tiliqua rugosa), eastern blue-tongued lizards (Tiliqua scinoides), bush rats, dunnarts and an array of native birds.
