Zoos Victoria Helping Animals

There are so many great things Zoos Victoria do to protect our wildlife and now they have added their help to fundraising efforts through the Bushfire Emergency Wildlife Fund.

As a voice and strong supporter of wildlife, Zoos Victoria is devastated by the impact of the bushfire crisis on precious species and their habitat and is determined to assist in all aspects. Every donation you make will fund emergency veterinary care and scientific intervention such as exploring supplementary feeding for the animals who have survived, but whose habitats have been destroyed by the bushfires.

Zoos Victoria across their three locations, Melbourne Zoo, Werribee Open Range Zoo and Healesville Sanctuary, already do much to ensure animals do not become extinct or endangered, they are so much more than just a place to see wild animals. Besides events and programs for the general public as well as for schools, they undertake vital research into breeding and protecting animals. One of their long-standing programs focuses on making labelling changes to products containing palm oil, so that consumers can make decisions on buying those products #LabelPalmoilAlready and orangutans can be protected. You can find all their programs for protecting animals on their website

They also have lots of summer holiday programs for young and old ranging from musical performances at the Zoo Twilights, a photography exhibition called Planet or plastic? and Melbourne Zoo Up Late with outdoor films and keeper talks.

Besides donating, the Bushfire Emergency Wildlife Fund, why not visit one of the three Zoos these holidays and get to know the animals and all the wonderful things Zoos Victoria do to ensure the welfare and future of wild animals.
