Tickets from eventbrite
Thanks to everyone who came along for a toe-tapping night at the movies! We raised $1,600 for Community Wildlife Units, and we had three new members sign up to the Fund (one of who was lucky enough to win a sun bear encounter at the National Zoo & Aquarium!!)
What a great night in the brand new Rhino Bistro at the National Zoo & Aquarium!
World-renowned orangutan expert, Leif Cocks, gave an inspiring presentation leaving everyone with lots to think about. Congratulations to the winners of accommodation at Jamala Wildlife Lodge (valued at over $1,400), the lucky door prize, the encounter with a Sumatran tiger and live auction items (a bespoke tour of the National Zoo & Aquarium valued at over $600, a painting by an orangutan and a run/brunch with the ACT Minister for Climate Change)!
Thank you to all the wonderful people who came along and made the night such a success! And a very big thank you to our generous sponsors: MC Aaron from Ceremonies by Aaron, auctioneer Shane Zwajgenberg – Belle Property, photos by Lex and Drew from Belco Pets, the team from As Nature Intended at Belconnen Markets, Shane Rattenbury MLA, Chifley Grocer, Capital Brewing Co., the wonderful Canberra volunteers from The Orangutan Project and of course the amazing dedicated staff from the National Zoo & Aquarium and the delicious catering from Jamala Wildlife Lodge!
All proceeds will go to The Orangutan Project for the protection of critically endangered wildlife and habitat in Bukit Tigapuluh, Sumatra, Indonesia.
Thanks to everyone who came along for a hilarious night at the movies! We raised $1,293 for the amazing rangers at Bukit Tigapuluh, Sumatra, to protect endangered wildlife!
