Pails for Scales Conservation

Roy has now closed Pails For Scales Uniquie Pets after 13 years , as he wanted to devote the rest of his 'fit years', to conservation work on both "THE BLOCK" Berringa Sanctuary, Victoria and the new Sanctuary "KRURR - RAK" Conservation Reserve, near Clear Lake, on the edge of Jipanger Nature Reserve, whilst also volunteering with the Australian Wildlife Conservancy.

As Roy started to relax out on the sanctuary ,him being a workaholic that he is decided to start his own conservation organisation , Pails For Scales Conservation , taking over another 3 properties    This devotion has turned into much more, with Pails for Scales Conversation entailing five properties: Sunset Sanctuary (formally The Block) at Berringa, Krurr-rak Conservation Reserve at Clear Lake , Kerrigundi Sanctuary West of Cobar, Antarcticus (Saltia) in the Flinders Range, and Wamsley Sanctuary at  Blanchetown. With a total of 8500 acres.

Sunset Sanctuary is now cat and fox proof allowing endangered wildlife to roam free and safe
