Earth Sanctuaries

Little River Earth Sanctuary

Little River Earth Sanctuary is a 1185 ha protected area in Victoria Australia, near the You Yangs and the town of Little River. It is owned by Earth Sanctuaries, a publicly listed company that has conservation as its core role. and opened to the public on September 7th 2002.

Earth Sanctuaries purchased the property from the Chirnsides in March 2000, due to the presence of a 170-hectare remnant of old-growth grassy woodland. 21 kilometres of feral-animal proof fencing has since been constructed, to protect the Long-nosed Potoroos, Southern Brown Bandicoots, Rufous Bettongs, Red-bellied Pademelons, Eastern Quolls and Brush-tailed Phascogales have been introduced back to their former habitat.

More recently the sanctuary has undergone a change of management and is known as the Mt Rothwell Conservation and Research Centre.
