The term "Noah's Ark" can conjure up many images. For some, it's a biblical reference set in modern day Turkey. For others, it's traveling through the lush landscapes of southern Africa while on safari. For Australians though, the term invokes a call to action to protect the endangered species that call Tasmania home.

Tasmania's strikingly picturesque land - with its nature reserves, beaches, clear waters, glacial remnants and World Heritage Sites – provides the perfect ecosystem for migrating blue and humpback whales, kangaroos, southern elephant seals, wedge-tailed eagles, albatrosses, petrels, skinks, wombats, the threatened subarctic fur seal, and, of course, the famed Tasmanian devil.

    Noah's ark really conjures now a new image. Nice description. I felt a strong desire to visit this area in Tasmania.

Last October, the Conservation Ecology Centre near Cape Otway in Victoria, Australia announced the birth of four Tiger Quoll joeys. The announcement was significant because even 10 years ago, Wild Tiger Quolls were thought to be extinct in Cape Otway and because this was the Centre's first attempt at creating a breeding program.

In the last few years, the Conservation Ecology Centre established the Great Ocean Ecolodge as an ecologically responsible social enterprise where all profits would be invested back into wildlife conservation. Not only are vital funds being raised, but the Ecolodge also provides opportunities for people all over the world to get involved in exciting, hands-on conservation.

Distinctive New Zealand is resplendent with nature, adventure, flora, fauna, and naturalist guides committed to conservation.  And, as the last major landmass on earth to be settled – humans arrived 1000 years ago in comparison to Australia, which was settled 60,000 years ago – New Zealand is also a constant study in evolution.
