Chauncy Vale Wildlife Sanctuary

In 2018/19 for 9 months, I was the volunteer caretaker of Chauncy Vale Wildlife sanctuary living in a residence on site. This experience took me deeper into connection with land and appreciation for it’s nature. I was involved in fundraising events, management meetings, built a new website, networked with schools and community groups, organised events and developed programs and activities. I also guided walks and interpretive tours of the sanctuary and visits to Nan Chauncy’s (An award winning Australian children’s author) heritage listed homestead. I was the recipient of the 2018/19 Southern midlands community grant. With this funding, I produced this series of videos “People Of Chauncy Vale” exploring the stories of it’s past, present and future to be used as a resource to educate schools and community groups about the cultural, historical, natural and conservation values and help protect this peaceful sanctuary for future generations to come visit.

The brief was to raise awareness about youth and violence , a major issue affecting many families and individuals with the community of ‘2261’.
