Scotia Sanctuary was established in 1994 with help from the Australian Government's National Reserve System program. It is owned and managed by the Australian Wildlife Conservancy.

An ambitious project is underway at Scotia to reintroduce mammals to the sanctuary that are locally and regionally extinct. Australian Wildlife Conservancy has fenced off a 4,000 hectare stretch of habitat which is kept free of introduced predators such as foxes, and native wildlife including bilbies and bridle nail-tailed wallabies have been reintroduced. The native animals are regularly monitored to ensure their populations are healthy and growing.
