Help us to conserve our habitat
Tilligerry Habitat Association is a non-profit, community association with objectives of conservation, rehabilitation, education and community engagement. The Tilligerry Habitat Information and Activity Centre have Advanced Accreditation for the National Eco Tourism Accreditation Program. Our major goal is to retain and improve Tilligerry Habitat Reserve for the environment, locals and tourists.
However, all of this takes significant effort and volunteer goodwill. We encourage the support of individuals, industries and groups interested in positive action. Over time, we will be making it possible to donate to our work through this page and online donations. In the meantime, please enquire with our friendly volunteer staff at Tilligerry Habitat about how you can support our ongoing work. Help us maintain our membership base by joining and taking part.
