A new home for our beloved [yellow tail] wallaby!

17th December 2020 | Written by client

A new home for our beloved [yellow tail] wallaby!

We recently collaborated with the Altin family to build a state of the art sanctuary to help protect the Yellow Footed Rock Wallaby at their Altina Wildlife Park. Often mistaken for a kangaroo, the Yellow Footed Rock Wallaby is the species depicted in our [yellow tail] logo.

The sanctuary officially opened on Monday with a breeding program that will assist in the long term survival of the endangered wallaby. They have been nursing the species for almost a year and, having already given birth to three babies with three more in the pouch, they are making exciting progress.

Casella Family Brands donated $81,300 toward the construction of the sanctuary.

Daniel Casella, Commercial Manager of Casella Family Brands, is thrilled to be able to support the animal that has characterised our [yellow tail] wine brand for nearly 20 years.

“It’s a world famous marsupial now so for people to come to the spiritual home of the wine and see them looking so healthy and vibrant is really great.”

Yellow Footed Rock Wallaby populations have been on the decline since the introduction of invasive species. They often fall prey to foxes and feral cats, and have to compete with other introduced species such as rabbits and feral goats for food and resources.

Co-founder of Altina Wildlife Park, Gloria Altin, is delighted to be able to contribute to the recovery of this beloved endangered animal.

“We are very honoured that the Casella family asked us to get involved with this program and we are very happy that the wallabies are breeding well.”
