Good News Story

After years of working behind the scenes, we’ve been waiting for this moment! One of the world’s most critically endangered and genetically distinct species, the Plains-wanderer, has been released into the wild for the very first time, embarking on a vital journey to help save the species from extinction.


In a collaborative research trial led by Zoos Victoria, Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, Parks Victoria, Taronga Zoo Sydney, Trust for Nature, and Department of Planning, Industry and Environment, four pairs of tiny, ground-dwelling Plains-wanderers are now roaming on public and privately owned land in Victoria’s Northern Plains, while being closely tracked by a team of conservationists. We can’t wait to keep you updated on their progress.

Zoos Victoria would like to thank and acknowledge funding partners; the Victorian Government, the Geostudies Fund, a sub-fund of the Australian Community Foundation, Judith Landsberg and David Cash, Andy McGillivray and Judy McGillivray, Elizabeth Sarrailhe, Kate Vinot and Blaise Vinot and Sally White.
