Another, less common, method of setting aside land for conservation is through sanctuaries. Sanctuaries can be created over private or public land and provide a level of protection for wildlife similar to that in reserves [see National Parks and Wildlife Act 1972 (SA) s 44]. To investigate the creation of a sanctuary on private land, contact the Department for Environment and Water.
