About the Sanctuary
I (Brolga) first established the Baby Kangaroo Rescue Centre in Alice Springs in 2005. I then build The Kangaroo Sanctuary Alice Springs, a 188 acre wildlife sanctuary for our rescued orphaned baby kangaroos and adult kangaroos, which I opened in 2011. Our mission is to educate and encourage people to rescue and care for kangaroos and other wildlife and animals. Our motto is Animals Come First.
In 2013 our documentary called Kangaroo Dundee was made by BBC UK / National Geographic USA and follows the interesting lives of our mob of rescue kangaroos and other wildlife. Our documentary is shown in over 90 countries and is now up to its third series.
In 2015 I built Central Australia’s first wildlife hospital with the help of kind donations and from visitors on tours of our Sanctuary. Donations are welcome to help us continue to run both our Sanctuary and Kangaroo Hospital so that we can rescue and care for our orphaned baby and adult kangaroos living at our Sanctuary.
Our mission is animals come first. We rescue, rehabilitate and release orphaned baby kangaroos back into the wild. Those who can’t be released into the wild are released into the wilds of our 188 acre Sanctuary.
Education is a priority. We provide education to other wildlife carers, the general public, school groups and visitors through our guided sunset tour.
How You Can Help
You can help our Kangaroo Sanctuary or Kangaroo Hospital by donating.
We also encourage people to become involved in care of all animals through a number of ways including becoming a carer in your local area, assisting with rescue centres in your local area, checking roadkill kangaroos for orphans and to protect other wildlife (such as eagles and dingoes) from being hit by vehicles by removing the dead animal from the road.
