From Building Waste to Wildlife Sanctuary: IMAS Donation to Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary Sees Sustainability in Action

The Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS) has worked with Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary on a sustainable solution for repurposing the materials being removed ahead of a proposed upgrade to the world-class fisheries and aquaculture precinct at Taroona, Tasmania.

IMAS Fisheries and Aquaculture Centre Head, Professor Sean Tracey said the reuseable structures and materials from the former Tasmanian Government’s Wildlife Centre will now be donated to the Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary.

The Taroona Environment Network (TEN) put forward the solution during the University of Tasmania’s community meetings about the proposed site transformation, and IMAS and the University were keen to make it happen.
