Crowdfunding success sees Aussie Ark acquire wildlife refuge
Conservation organisation Aussie Ark has announced that following a successful month of crowdfunding, they have been able to acquire the Curricabark property which sits on 250 hectares of land and is intended to one day be the home to some of Australia’s most endangered species that Aussie Ark is currently caring for.
The Curricabark property is located near the Aussie Ark site, high up in the Barrington Tops of NSW. Considered a wildlife refuge since 1974, the property protects about 30 threatened native species on its perimeters.
Aussie Ark President, Tim Faulkner exclaimed “we are absolutely astonished by the generosity of everyone who donated to our crowdfunding campaign. All the species the property is protecting - and will protect in the future - are so thankful to all of you.
Over a month of fundraising, more than $50,000 was raised to allow Aussie Ark to purchase the wildlife refuge. In line with its mission to rewild the Barrington Tops region and bring balance back to the bush, Aussie Ark’s new acquisition is paving the way to the development of additional sanctuaries that will protect some of our most vulnerable native species.
From the 10th to 12th of November, Aussie Ark hosted the Aussie Ark Wild Ride, its first-ever sporting charity event, in an effort to raise funds for its crowdfunding campaign. Two riders, Tony and Andrew, embarked on a 300km journey to bike from the Australian Reptile Park on the Central Coast to the Aussie Ark facility in the Barrington Tops.
Faulkner adds Fundraising for a cause that matters to you can take on many forms. For Tony and Andrew, it was a courageous 300km biking adventure up the Barrington Tops.’
Through its sanctuaries and the vigorous work of its team, Aussie Ark allows native ecosystems to evolve naturally without the threat of unnatural predation. Aussie Ark is slowly providing ecological restoration to the Barrington Tops by reintroducing key species - ecosystem engineers - to its grounds.
