The Fondation du Zoo de Granby is seeking the public’s support through its fundraising campaign to help Australia’s flora and wildlife, devastated by the country’s ongoing forest fires. Protecting endangered species is a Zoo de Granby’s priority and a key part of its mission.
THE ZOO’S FOUNDATION IS THEREFORE COMMITTED TO DONATE AN AMOUNT OF $20,000 TO THE CAUSE.
Following a recommendation by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), from which the Zoo de Granby is accredited, all donations will go to the Bushfire Emergency Wildlife Fund. The campaign was launched by Zoos Victoria’s three zoological gardens: the Healesville Sanctuary, the Melbourne Zoo and the Werribee Open Range Zoo. The donations gathered will be used in emergency veterinary care for animals affected by the fires, and to ensure Australia’s wildlife long-term recovery.
