Southern Hairy-nosed wombat, Lee, loves his daily walk with wildlife keeper Claudette, but at only 11 months old it doesn’t take long before he is in need of some extra TLC, including a bottle of milk, lots of hugs and a nap!
Next time you’re visiting the Sanctuary keep an eye out for Lee on one of his his daily walks.
Keep Australia Beautiful
Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary would like to thank the 2016 Keep Australia Beautiful, Beverage Container Recycling Grant program for providing us with $17411.13 to fund 46 new bins to utilise in our beautiful sanctuary.
This Keep Australia Beautiful funding is directed at reducing beverage container waste and we are certain that our lovely new recycling bins will do just that! We know however that bins only fix part of the problem and Education is the key.
At Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary we have incorporated Re-think into the Reduce, Re-use, Recycle message. The Rethink component is to encourage visitors/children to re-think outside the box to come up with recycling solutions for problems that don’t necessarily fit into the Reduce, Re-use, and Recycle message alone and to improve the recycling process. This message is used throughout our Education programs and Blinky Bill performances at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary. We are committed to supporting conservation efforts within a natural environment. We continuously look for ways to improve and reduce negative impact on the environment and educate our guests and school visitors to do the same.
Sadly in the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital we too often see the effects of litter on our wild, native Australian animals. We have countless numbers of patients admitted each year with injuries due to rubbish that has not been disposed of thoughtfully. This includes hooks, line and plastic. Our message is that together we can save our wildlife; by disposing of your beverage containers and other waste correctly you are helping to preserve our natural environment and the amazing creatures in it.
