Fighting Crimes Against Australian Wildlife

After discovering a crocodile that had been illegally shot in the Wenlock River in Queensland's Cape York, we knew we had to do more to protect wildlife against criminal activity. We formed a partnership with Australia Zoo and Crime Stoppers to offer a reward for those providing information leading to the prosecution of those responsible for these terrible acts against our native wildlife. Rewards range from $1,000 to $10,000.


In the past, we have seen koalas that have been shot, brush-turkey's covered in spray paint and kangaroos hit by crossbows. This partnership will offer a new layer of protection for Queensland's defenceless animals.


The statewide campaign is a first in Australia, and we look forward to working alongside Crime Stoppers to further protect the animals Steve was so passionate about saving.
