City wildlife pol­icy

South Western Times - - News -

Bun­bury City Coun­cil this week en­dorsed its new Bun­bury Wildlife Park Com­mit­ment to An­i­mal Wel­fare pol­icy in a bid to pro­vide a “pos­i­tive an­i­mal wel­fare state” to all species in its care.

The pol­icy fo­cuses on nu­tri­tion, en­vi­ron­ment, health, be­hav­iour and psy­cho­log­i­cal state.

In a re­port to the coun­cil, City of Bun­bury peo­ple and place man­ager Is­abell Evans said the park was par­tic­i­pat­ing in “ground-break­ing” breed­ing pro­grams with crit­i­cally en­dan­gered an­i­mals and al­ready mak­ing a pos­i­tive con­tri­bu­tion to the con­ser­va­tion of na­tive Aus­tralian species.

“Of­fi­cers con­sider con­ser­va­tion to be of equal im­por­tance as tourism ben­e­fit when con­sid­er­ing the pur­pose of the Bun­bury Wildlife Park,” she said.
