25% of sales from this print will go to Sleepy Burrows Wombat Sanctuary
Situated near Gundaroo – some 35-kilometres northeast of Canberra.
The sanctuary is home to sick, injured, illegal pet and orphaned wombats undergoing rehabilitation.
The wombats are nursed to full health and retaught how to survive in the wild (prior to release).
No wombat is released without the necessary skills to survive in the bush.
Like many other wildlife organisations, they have been imapcted by the recent bushfires.
The Sleepy Burrows Wombat Sanctuary, along with Wombat Rescue, are working diligently daily to save whatever creatures survived the horrific bush fires by placing basins of water and food in key areas where they have seen survivors. Donations and funding mean that they can continue placing as many watering stations as they can, along with food for these desperate animals.
