Aside from being an 'all-Australian' Zoo in the heart of Darling Harbour, WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo proudly supports the WILD LIFE Conservation Fund - a non for profit organisation that works tiredlessly to fundraise for various animal projects throughout the year!
Check out some of their exciting upcoming projects for 2016!
Project Quoll - conservation partner 'Foundation for Australia's Most Endangered'
Project Quoll aims to support the conservation effort to bring back the Western Quoll to the Flinders Ranges, South Australia. Successfully repopulating western quolls to the Flinders Ranges will be a major step towards improving its conservation status and ultimately to having it delisted as a threatened species.
Project Cassowary - conservation partner 'Garners Beach Cassowary Rehabilitation Centre'
Begining with the rescue and rehabilitation of three Cassowary chicks - Project Cassowary now aims to raise funds for purchasing land in the Daintree Rainforest for restoration and a space to rehabiltate other orphaned Cassowary's.
This project enables the research and monitoring of Koala's in the Blue Mountains. The aim is to gain more knowledge on how far they move, how often they encounter other Koala's and what they eat.
Continued funding of genetic mapping of Tasmanian Devil genomes as part of the conservation breeding program.
Project Wombat - conservation partner 'Sleepy Burrows Wombat Sanctuary'
This project is to support the Sleepy Burrows Wombat Sanctuary to rehabilitate injured, orphaned and pet wombats.
With so many exciting projects, we don't know where to look! Watch this space for project updates.
