Happy Birthday Moonlit Sanctuary!

Happy Birthday Moonlit Sanctuary!

This September, Moonlit Sanctuary celebrates two decades of bringing people and wildlife together. As a child, Founder Michael Johnson dreamt of a special place where people could experience the rare and unusual animals that roam the Australian bush. Today that place is Moonlit Sanctuary. Set on 10 hectares of natural bush and wetlands, the Sanctuary is a leading ambassador for wildlife education, endangered species awareness and conservation.
