TreadRight Partners with Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors


The Travel Corporation’s TreadRight Foundation, which encourages the sustainable development of tourism, reports its partner AAT Kings has teamed up with Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors to support the koala rehabilitation project at Australia Zoo’s Wildlife Hospital – Australia’s largest and busiest wildlife facility.

Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors will receive $48,000 over two years, with the organizations uniting over a shared passion for caring for Australia’s wildlife and protecting it. Koalas are among the most commonly treated patients at Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital, which cares for nearly 800 koalas each year at an average cost of $1,500 per animal.

The TreadRight Foundation and AAT Kings’ contribution will go towards the medical treatment and rehabilitation of koalas at the centre, as well as the building of eco-friendly facilities that will help protect those that are sick and orphaned.
