Conserve the endangered Tiger Kuoll

luxury family trip philanthropic volunteering

Play a vital role in an urgent wildlife rescue mission!

The Tiger Quoll is the largest remaining marsupial carnivore on the Australian mainland and it is fast heading towards the same fate as its cousin, the Tasmanian Tiger.

The forests, woodlands and coastline of the Great Ocean Road are one of the last strongholds of the beautiful Tiger Quoll but even here this special species is in decline – we must act quickly to ensure the Tiger Quoll’s future.

Get involved and contribute to the future of this endangered species and the ecosystems on which it depends.

Your help may include:

•Population surveys: deploying, retrieving and reviewing camera traps

•DNA collection for analysis

•Biodiversity surveys

•Vegetation surveys

•Habitat restoration

•Caring for the resident Tiger Quolls – very beautiful animals who are teaching us so much about their species.

The majority of Tiger Quoll fieldwork takes place through the Australian winters, during the quolls’ breeding season. This is a magical time on the Great Ocean Road – the waterfalls are beautiful and the spectacular beaches are deserted as you watch for migrating whales playing just past the waves. The forest smells fresh and clean after the rains and your lodge awaits with a roaring fire. The camaraderie of such an important expedition and the chance to play a vital role in saving a very special species will be something you will treasure forever.
