Wildlife Land Trust / Sanctuaries / NSW / Wog Wog Wildlife Sanctuary

Lenore and Kim Taylor are the owners of Wog Wog Wildlife Sanctuary, a property located approximately 60km west of Eden.  The property is a dedicated wildlife sanctuary used for wildlife rehabilitation (mostly wombats), and it is Lenore and Kim’s intent to have the conservation values of Wog Wog Wildlife Sanctuary protected in perpetuity. Wog Wog Wildlife Sanctuary is also listed as a Wildlife Refuge with the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage.

The sanctuary covers 88 hectares of mountainous terrain, with two kilometers of frontage on Wog Wog River adjoining the Coolungooba section of South East Forests National Park.  Dominant vegetation species include blue gums (Eucalyptus globulus), greybox (Eucalyptus microcarpa), red (Eucalyptus macrorhyncha) and yellow (Eucalyptus muelleriana) stringybarks,  wattles, two very large kurrajongs (Brachychiton spp.), and figs.

Known wildlife species present on the Wog Wog Wildlife Sanctuary include bare-nosed wombats (Vombatus ursinus), swamp wallabies (Wallabia bicolour), and various glider, possum and bird species.
