Through the Prom Sanctuary project, Wilsons Promontory National Park will become a 50,000 hectare climate change safe haven – where Victoria’s rich wildlife and habitats are freed from the pressures of introduced predators and pests. A predator and grazer-proof exclusion fence and enhanced conservation programs – including invasive species control, large-scale habitat restoration and active threatened species recovery programs – will transform the much-loved national park into Victoria’s largest conservation sanctuary where nature is cared for and native animals and plants thrive.

Hear more about the Prom Sanctuary, Prom Revitalisation and Victorian Great Outdoors initiatives underway within Wilsons Promontory National Park and its Marine Protected Areas and the aligned community and education programs on offer to enhance visitor experiences.
