Chloe Helps Out Sell Tickets
15 October 2004By now you might all know Chloe the Cockatoo as one of our favourite animals at the Zoo. Not only is she gorgeous, but she's famous too!
She is certainly not camera-shy, as she loves to pose for photos with Steve and Terri all the time. Chloe is also part of our Wandering Wildlife Team and enjoys cruising around the Zoo meeting guests daily and teaching them about conservation, which is very interesting and exciting! Did you know that Chloe even starred with the Wiggles and Captain Feathersword in Steve's Wiggly Safari video and DVD? What a little legend!
Now, like all good movie stars, Chloe has been doing her fair share of charity work lately. She's been volunteering her time to help the team at Australia Zoo to raise money for the care of sick and injured wildlife that are brought to the Koala and Wildlife Hospital. She has been making special guest appearances at the ticket-selling stand, where we are raffling off a brand new Toyota Corolla for one lucky Wildlife Warrior! At $5 each, tickets are a bargain and all the money raised goes to such a great cause. There are also second and third prizes up for grabs and they're all drawn on Christmas Eve 2004!
So if you want to meet a real life movie star and support a great charity at the same time, get into Australia Zoo to buy your lucky ticket. Entries close on December 23rd so don't miss out!
