  • Tour Locations:Gidgegannup
  • Open Days:Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday,Friday,Saturday,Sunday,School holidays

Description

Happy Hooves Farm Sanctuary is a not-for-profit farm sanctuary located in Gidgegannup, Western Australia. We currently provide a forever home with lots of love and care to over 200 rescued animals.

Why do farmed animals need rescuing?

In Australia so called “production” animals are excluded from the protection of animal welfare legislation.  Sadly they are often forced to endure a life of total misery, be it in factory farms or utterly confined spaces; most of the time barely able to move. In addition to this, many are subjected to horrid acts of cruelty that for a domesticated animal such as a cat or dog would be illegal, and the perpetrators prosecuted. These animals live without sunshine, without freedom, without the ability to socialise, without hope. As the so called “higher being”, humans have decided that some animals are our ‘friends’ and other animals are simply ‘food’. What we need to understand, is that ALL animals have exactly the same capacity to feel pain, to suffer, to feel fear, to feel joy and the same desire to live a full life. We hope to show at our sanctuary, that it can be different, the world can change. Compassion and kindness makes a huge difference to every living creature.

Karakamia Sanctuary

Conservation and regeneration of the natural heritage of WA's wildlife in action. Karakamia is a 225 hectare piece of diverse bushland, left in its natural state, for the expressed purpose of conserving some of the area endangered wildlife.

  • Suited For:Adults (18+),Families
  • Type:Tours
  • Activity:Wildlife Park/Centre
  • Open days/Times:Open 9am - 5pm Mon to Fri

Details

  • Open Days:Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday,Friday

Description

Karakamia's aim is to restore the Darling Scarp to it's original state using conservation and breeding management programs. They consult with other conservation and research bodies, manage the land to an extent to prevent bushfires, but the most important work they do is by simply leaving the sanctuary alone and letting the animals restock their populations, sometimes from critically low levels. It is privately owned and funded and often deals with the office of CALM to ensure that everyone now and in the future has the right to enjoy the natural world as nature intended it. More a program centre than a tourist attraction, although limited number of groups and nocturnal tours are allowed by appointment.
