If you watch BBC2, you might have heard of Brolga, the star of Kangaroo Dundee, and his baby kangaroo rescue centre in Alice Springs, Australia.

Over 25 red kangaroos roam freely within this 90-acre wildlife preserve. Glimpse wildlife in an extraordinary way by taking a guided bus tours so you can see them up close. Each excursion lasts about two-and-a-half hours, so there’s a strong chance you’ll get to see these interesting creatures in their native environments. The guided sunset tour happens on Wednesday through Friday. The Sanctuary does close from December 1 to February 1 every year for rehabilitation.

The next step in an ongoing conservation process involves building a hospital on the grounds. If you’re not able to visit in person, it’s still possible to donate to the cause online via PayPal.
