WAMA will earn our social license and demonstrate our commitment to conservation by playing our role in helping to prevent the extinction of local wildlife from the Grampians by:

  • Building a predator-proof sanctuary at the WAMA site and working together with local wildlife sanctuary partners to fight extinction
  • Developing captive insurance populations of genetically unique, local wildlife species at risk of extinction from the Grampians
  • Returning locally extinct species to the WAMA sanctuary to demonstrate ‘rewilding’
  • Driving community lead, threatened species reintroductions across the Grampians to improve species conservation status, reverse local extinctions and rewilding by returning the missing ecological functions wildlife can provide
