Crime fighting zoo


AUSTRALIA Zoo has teamed up with Crime Stoppers Queensland and Wildlife Warriors to help protect native wildlife from unlawful criminal activity.

The partnershi­p will involve the popular zoo, founded by the Irwin family, collaborat­ing on a campaign and offering a reward of up to $10,000 for informatio­n leading to an arrest in relation to a crocodile that had been illegally shot in the Wenlock River.

The agreement follows a rise in attacks on Australia’s native animals in recent months, including koalas, brush turkeys and kangaroos.
