PEARCEDALE’S Moonlit Sanctuary shone at the Victorian Tourism Awards last week.
The sanctuary was named as the best eco tourism business in the state, delighting its chief executive Michael Johnson.
Mr Johnson said the award strengthened the sanctuary’s position as a leader in the eco tourism sector.
The 10ha Moonlit Sanctuary opened in 2001 and is home to more than 500 animals, including several endangered species.
The sanctuary also comes alive at night with lantern-lit tours.
“It is extremely gratifying to receive this award as recognition of the immense respect for our animals and the environment we operate within,” Mr Johnson said.
“We have spent a lot of time and effort caring for endangered species and educating visitors about our amazing flora and fauna.
“In addition, we have always been committed to implementing sustainable practices in the management of the sanctuary.”
The Moonlit Sanctuary is now in the running for the national award held in Perth on 11 March next year.
