Tourism stories

High help

Our giant sea eagles, and other magnificent raptors, capture imaginations. But Tasmania’s birds of prey are also under threat. However, happily they are now on the radar of a global travel giant who has stepped in to help. Luxury travel pioneers Abercrombie and Kent (A&K) has partnered with Tourism Tasmania to support the work of Tasmania’s Raptor Refuge which was set up in 1997 by conservationist Craig Webb. Spread over 20 acres in southern Tasmania, it’s the largest refuge for injured birds of prey in the southern hemisphere, and A&K’s support will enable the construction of a larger flight aviary. Premier Will Hodgman praised this exciting new partnership as recognising "the important work of the Refuge and will be A&K Philanthropy’s only Australian project…This is a great example of our tourism partners giving back to the community to ensure we protect our unique way of life.”
