“Australia Zoo is thrilled to be joining forces with OC Naturals to support the Adopt an Animal program,” says wildlife conservationist Bindi Irwin.
“We are at the forefront of ensuring our precious fauna are receiving love and protection at all times. Our efforts revolve around wildlife conservation globally, and it is incredible to be involved in an initiative that supports our mission of protecting wildlife and wild places.”
The ongoing fight for global wildflife conservation
Australia Zoo cares for over 1,200 gorgeous animals on top of the 37 animals within the adoption program. A conservation nirvana born from Australian icon Steve Irwin, Australia Zoo operates without government funding, making fundraising initiatives like this all the more important.
“Being a cause close to our hearts, OC Naturals has been a proud supporter of Australia Zoo’s conservation work for many years through being a sponsor of the zoo’s annual crocodile research trip,” says Natures Organics’ Marketing Manager for Personal Care, Elise Synnott.
“Continuing our partnership, we couldn’t think of a more fitting collaboration between our Australian-made and owned brand teaming up with the iconic Australia Zoo to raise much-needed funds and advocate for the animals without a voice.”
Why adopt an animal?
“My heart will always beat for wildlife. Terri and I fight every day for the preservation of wildlife and wilderness – it’s our mission in life. Our children are also taking up the challenge” These are the words of the late, great Steve Irwin.
With your support, the Adopt an Animal program can help animals like Bert and his fellow koala friends. Koalas may seem tiny, but each of them needs around 1,000kgs of eucalyptus leaves each day to stay full and happy!
These much-needed funds go towards helping the Australia Zoo operate their:
- endangered species breeding programs
- wildlife sanctuaries
- essential rehabilitation programs
- veterinary requirements, and
- general animal husbandry needs such as food and habitat maintenance.
Each year Natures Organics support Australia Zoo's Annual Croc Trip. While we are not out there looking for crocs, we provide the team with personal care and household products to help them on the trip. You can read more about the Crocodile Conservation work in the link below.
