Make a Wild Connection and Help Australian Wildlife

Australia is in the midst of a bushfire crisis, and the damage to both the environment and the animals that call it home has been devastating. 

Though media coverage of the bushfires has lessened somewhat, the need for habitat restoration and emergency animal aid has not. 

Our animal care staff is dedicated to supporting the bushfire recovery efforts. During the week of February 17 through 23, they have volunteered to host a series of Wild Connections with some of the zoo's residents, with 100% of the proceeds benefitting Zoos Victoria and their Bushfire Emergency Wildlife Fund

Book your Wild Connection here and help support bushfire-affected wildlife.
