Community Engagement

At Safe Haven we care for the region’s sick, injured and orphaned native animals. Our community education programs stress the importance of maintaining a healthy natural environment to ensure the well-being of our precious native animals.

Community engagement opportunities include volunteer opportunities, public involvement in research programs, fundraising events, adopt-a-wombat program, traineeships, Eco-tourism, seminars and workshops for university, TAFE, secondary and primary school students.

The Safe Haven Project offers high quality wildlife education programs to enable our local community groups, industry bodies and individuals to be actively involved in the protection of our native animals.

Safe Haven in partnership with University of Queensland conducts scientific research in genetics, stress physiology, metabolism and growth, reproduction and assisted breeding technologies. Our results are applied to enhance wildlife breeding techniques and conservation.

Volunteering at Safe Haven

Volunteering at Safe Haven


As a not for profit organisation we rely on fundraising, donations and the help from the public. Whilst monetary donations are greatly appreciated, we understand many are unable to contribute financially but still want to help in other ways. There is a lot involved in feeding and caring for the animals as well as maintaining the infrastructure.

If you would like to donate any of these items, or indeed anything else you think we might use, please contact Tina 0408 613 914 to discuss arrangements.
