Through-out their lifetime, striving to protect animals, Steve and Terri discovered that severe destruction of wildlife and their habitat often occurs in places where human suffering is so intense, that there can be no possibility of compassion for other species.
Australia Zoo's dedication to helping people from around the world runs parallel to our mission of conservation through education.
GRANTING KIDS WISHES
The Irwin family and Australia Zoo are dedicated to granting the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses. Since 1994, we have worked closely with charity organisations such as the Make-a-Wish and the Starlight Foundation to brighten the lives of these special children and their entire families.
Rotary is a worldwide organisation comprised of business and professional leaders who are working together to address various community and international service needs. Their aim is to promote peace and understanding throughout the world.
SMILES ALL ROUND
BW Croc, the cuddliest crocodile at Australia Zoo, loves bringing a smile to the face of every child she meets! As well as spreading joy and laughter to the children who visit the Zoo, BW Croc loves to venture out for a day to visit the Royal Children's Hospital in Brisbane.
WATOTO CHILDRENS CHOIR
Exploding into Queensland with a sense of purpose, the energetic and colourful Watoto Children's Choir are like rock stars, especially to the 1364 other children in the care of the Watoto Child Care Ministries (WCCM) in Uganda.
FUNDRAISING AND DONATIONS
Australia Zoo is contacted daily by charities right across the world, seeking merchandise for them to raffle or auction in aid of their charity. Australia Zoo generously responds to all of the requests in whatever way we possibly can!
