Platinum Corporate Sponsors
The Australia Zoo Croc Cruiser, proudly sponsored by Sci-Fleet Toyota, at the Steve Irwin Day Gala Dinner in 2009.
Sci-Fleet Toyota have been corporate sponsors of Australia Zoo since 2004.
Sci-Fleet Toyota kindly donated three vehicles in order for us to continue our vital rescue, rehabilitation and conservation work.
These vehicles were used for a trip to Weipa in far North Queensland, on which Andrew Sci-Fleet joined Steve and the Australia Zoo crew to help attach satellite transmitters to wild Saltwater Crocodiles. We are now collecting vital information on the movements of all of these crocodiles, including the croc Steve named Sci-Fleet.
This information is essential in order to promote a better understanding of these ecologically important animals and their continued conservation in the wild, and it has allowed us a glimpse into the crocodile's secretive world.
The Coca-Cola plaque outside the Tiger Temple.
Coca-Cola Amatil have been corporate sponsors since 2004 supporting projects including Bengal and Sumatran Tiger conservation and more recently, the Australia Zoo Crocodile Research Trip to the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve.
With their help, a total of 150 estuarine crocodiles in the Wenlock River are being tracked, each providing critical data and contributing to the knowledge base of these incredible apex predators. While we can’t take everyone to see crocs in the wild, we can teach you how to stay safe in their territory in our world famous Mount Franklin Crocoseum!
The Fujifilm plaque outside our wonderful Asian Small-clawed Otter enclosure.
Don't Bonnie and Maria just look so happy in their awesome little home!
Fujifilm have been corporate sponsors of our Asian Small-clawed Otters since 1995.
Thanks to Fujifilm, we now have two adorable Otters, Bonnie and Maria, in a state-of-the-art exhibit designed to replicate their exact requirements out in the wild.
The Asian Small-clawed Otters are a favourite attraction for many, and visitors are seen stopping for hours, watching in amazement as the otters dart around the enclosure and slide down the waterfall.
Fujifilm's support is also helping with future expansion plans to breed our own otters right here at Australia Zoo.
Dave from Fujifilm also had the opportunity of travelling up to Weipa with the Australia Zoo crew to assist with attaching satellite transmitters to wild Saltwater Crocodiles. With his support, we are also now collecting data on the croc Steve named Fuji.
Gold Corporate Sponsors
The Boral plaque outside the Koala Walkthrough
Leno; just one of the many gorgeous koalas who enjoy the Koala Walkthrough
Boral have been a Gold Corporate Sponsor since January 2008.
Boral has signed an agreement with Australia Zoo to plant the Koala Fodder Plantation on the Narangba quarry site, giving Australia Zoo and local Koala carer groups (such as Caboolture Koala Care & Rescue Inc.) access to the fodder to feed injured, orphaned koalas and resident koalas.
When the koala fodder trees reach a suitable stage of development they will be cropped or pruned to provide some of the feed for koalas at Australia Zoo and the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital, and also for koalas being cared for in their homes by registered wildlife carers. This contribution from Boral will assist in a small way to the overall needs of sick and injured koala in the region.
The Mark Webber Foundation is a proud sponsor of Tasmanian Devil conservation
Australia Zoo has proudly teamed up with Formula One driver Mark Webber in the race to save the endangered Tasmanian Devil from the contagious Devil Facial Tumour Disease (DFTD), with the Mark Webber Foundation providing a substantial donation to help improve our Tasmanian Devil enclosure.
"Talking with Tasmanians, we have come to understand the battle that these guys face for survival and the incredible efforts by organisations such as Save the Tasmanian Devil Appeal and Australia Zoo to try and make a difference," Mark said. He praised Australia Zoo for "having one of the most successful breeding programs on record. Their committment to increasing the captive-bred population will hopefully ensure the survival of the species."
Mark was featured in issue #20 Summer 2012 of our Crikey! Magazine for his contribution and support. Download this great 3 page article and read all about it! (400kb PDF)
