About the Sanctuary
The La Trobe Wildlife Sanctuary was created in 1967 as a project in the restoration and management of indigenous flora and fauna. We have continued to grow and expand our role so that we can continue to educate and engage the broader community.
La Trobe Wildlife Sanctuary forms part of a corridor network of conservation properties extending to the north of the La Trobe University Campus. These include the Gresswell Forest Nature Conservation Reserve, the Gresswell Habitat Link, and the Gresswell Hill Nature Conservation Reserve. These properties all play a vital role in preserving the biodiversity and health of this region.
