Aussie Ark Celebrates 10 Years of Wildlife Conservation
Established in 2011 as “Devil Ark” in an effort to save the iconic Tasmanian Devil from extinction, the conservation organization Aussie Ark is celebrating 10 years of wildlife conservation. Due to resounding success, the role of the organization has expanded and now has a vision to create a long term future for endangered Australian species through the rewilding of lost or threatened species.
To help celebrate, Aussie Ark is launching an online auction of a unique piece of art by artist Warren J Fox. Warren J Fox is an Australian artist, who creates photo-realistic illustrations, based on detailed photographs.
The incredible * SIZE * artwork features a young Tasmanian Devil Joey nestled in the hands of Aussie Ark President Tim Faulkner. All donations made through the campaign will be directly reinvested in the vital work undertaken by Aussie Ark, protecting Australia’s native wildlife from extinction.
Aussie Ark President Tim Faulkner enthusiastically âIt’s amazing – really, I’m in awe of the details of the artwork. Warren has an amazing eye, and we are so grateful for his support for L’Arche and our mission.
âOur tenth anniversary is a time to take a step back and recognize all that we have been able to do for wildlife over the past decade.
“The past 10 years have been crazy – full of ups and downs and for one, I’m delighted to see what the next decade has in store for conservation in Australia.”
In Aussie Ark’s 10-year history, the organization has grown its land 500%, returned the Tasmanian Devil to mainland Australia for the first time in 3,000 years, built a class turtle rearing facility world, bred over 400 Tasmanian Devil’s joeys and reintroduced the Eastern Quoll to Barrington Tops. During the black summer disaster, Aussie Ark was at the heart of the action, relocating hundreds of endangered turtles, rescuing dying platypuses, and providing additional food sources for displaced wildlife.
While the organization is proud of its successes over the past decade, it is not yet finished. In the next 12 months alone, Aussie Ark plans to launch breeding programs for Spotted-tailed Quolls, Squirrel Gliders, several species of frogs, and the Broad-toothed Rat. They are also in the development phase of the creation of their new Mongo Valley Wildlife Sanctuary.
