Protecting Endangered Wildlife

Protecting Endangered Wildlife
Forty-spotted Pardalote - K and M Campbell

The Inala Foundation is dedicated to protecting endangered wildlife, in particular the Forty-spotted Pardalote, which is an endangered Tasmanian endemic bird species. The Inala Nature Reserve also provides critical habitat for the Swift Parrot during their breeding season, and a safe haven for the endangered Eastern Quoll. Funds donated to the Inala Foundation support efforts to protect these species and others through specific projects often run in collaboration with university research staff and students.
