Ottomin Foundation joins the Wild Futures journey at Taronga Zoo

The Ottomin Foundation is delighted to announce its commitment of $1 million to the Taronga Conservation Society Wild Futures project.

The Wild Futures project is the most ambitious project in Taronga’s history for Australian wildlife and comprises three new facilities – two world-class Wildlife Hospitals in Sydney and Dubbo and a state-of-the-art Reptile & Amphibian Conservation Centre at Taronga Zoo Sydney. The total cost of the project is $80.7 million and the NSW Government has agreed to match-fund every dollar donated up to $40 million.

The Zoo’s two current Wildlife Hospitals were built in the 1970s and are simply no longer fit for purpose. The new facilities will provide additional space for the increasing demand on Taronga’s services for treatment, surgeries, rehabilitation and quarantine and will also enable widespread training and upskilling of wildlife carers, students and veterinary practitioners across the country. The project will future-proof Australian wildlife and will cement NSW as a global leader in wildlife conservation.

The Ottomin Foundation has a long history of supporting environmental conservation programs and is thrilled to be committing this impact-driven donation to such a transformational project.
