Mulligans Flat Woodland Sanctuary expansion

Mulligans Flat Woodland Sanctuary was established in the ACT to enable restoration and support research of Box-Gum Grassy Woodlands and associated biodiversity.

The ACT and Commonwealth Governments supported the expansion of the sanctuary to 1555ha - triple its current size. This will enable the protection of more Box-Gum Grassy Woodland and create opportunities to reintroduce species extinct in the wild in the ACT, such as the Eastern Quoll, Eastern Bettong, and New Holland Mouse.

Further funding through the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program, supported by ACT NRM and ACT Parks and Conservation Service in partnership with the Woodlands and Wetlands Trust will prepare the new sanctuary for the reintroduction of native species.
