Moorunde Wildlife Reserve is maintained by volunteers on working-bees, maintaining fences and access tracks and removing weeds. The reserve is owned and preserved by the Natural History Society, which raised money to buy sections of a working Station near Blanchetown in 1968. The farming land was rehabilitated over the next 40 years and water provided for the wildlife to reestablish in the habitat. In 2006 the Society purchased more of the land from the Station, so that now Moorunde Wildlife Reserve totals almost 7,000 hectares in size.
Of course there are more than just wombats living in SA's Murray-Mallee!
