Wildlife Asia is asking Sydneysiders to shake off the winter blues and party for animals at two events in August:
Rhino in the Garden,
Wednesday 1 August.
Renowned conservationist Tim Flannery is giving the behind the scenes story of Australian conservationists and the Indonesian rhino crisis.
You may have recently seen the birth of a Sumatran rhino on TV but did you know that a small Australian conservation organisation, the Asian Rhino Project, is leading international efforts to save the Sumatran rhino, the most endangered rhinoceros species in the world, and the Javanese rhino the rarest large mammal in the world.
Tim Flannery will host a cocktail party and presentation on the evening of Wednesday 1 August at the Sydney Tropical Centre, Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney in the presence of the Consul General of the Republic of Indonesia, Mr. Gary Yusuf.
Orangutan by the Harbour, Tuesday 7 August.
Taronga Zoo, on the shores of Sydney Harbour, is the venue for a family friendly presentation by Leif Cocks, President of The Orangutan Project on the evening of Tuesday 7 August.
‘Redheads for Redheads’ Ambassador Bianca Dye is attending. All guests receive a ‘Ranga Snack Pack’.
The presentation will focus on the essential work of The Wildlife Protection Unit in Bukit Tigapuluh, Sumatra, Indonesia, saving the habitat of orangutan and elephant.
