Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital Calls For Action On World Wildlife Day

Excerpt from Australian Leisure Management 

Given the increasing number of patients that it treats the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital (AZWH) is urging people to take action to help those who cannot speak for themselves this World Wildlife Day - Tuesday 3rd March. In the past year, as a result of unprecedented weather conditions resulting in drought, fire and floods, Australia’s native wildlife has experienced an extremely challenging period.

The conservation of wild places and wildlife is fundamental to our survival as human beings. We are intrinsically linked to nature in many ways that people don’t even realise.

Dr Booth adds “for example, flying foxes feed on the nectar and pollen of native blossoms and fruits and are instrumental in the conservation of our environment as they spread seeds and pollinate native plants and crops. Without the flying fox, many of our forest environments will suffer too and ultimately so will people as without forests the quality of air and water also degrades.”
