Volunteer for a Conservation Project

Zoos SA works with volunteers to undertake on-ground conservation work as part of the Monarto Restoration Project. Conservation activities include weed management, seed collection, planting and monitoring. If you would like to be involved in this inspiring and important work contact us at [email protected] for more information about how to get involved.

Don’t Palm Us Off

Orangutans are facing extinction due to the unsustainable production of palm oil, an ingredient found in around half of all supermarket products. Help fight for a future where any palm oil in Australian supermarkets is clearly labelled and is only 100% Certified Sustainable Palm Oil (CSPO) – where oil is produced in a way that aims to protect the last remaining habitat for wildlife and preserve the livelihoods of producers.

They’re Calling On You

You can help support primate conservation in Africa with the simple act of recycling old mobile phones.

Mobile phone and other electronic devices contain coltan, a space-age metal that has allowed devices to become even smaller.

About 80% of the world’s coltan reserves are located in the Democratic Republic of Congo – home to gorillas, chimpanzees and other precious primates. Uncontrolled coltan mining results in tens of thousands of miners moving into an area. In addition to destroying habitat through the mining process, miners hunt animals for food. The bushmeat trade flourishes, as does illegal trade in orphaned apes and other animals as pets.

As part of a joint initiative of the Zoos and Aquarium Association and the Jane Goodall Institute, Zoos SA supports this mobile phone recycling project to help save gorillas and chimpanzees.

Kenya is home to the critically endangered Black Rhino. There are less than 5000 remaining in the wild, largely due to poaching.
