We are so grateful to have a strong partnership with such a great company that really cares about its local environment – and lives up to the community custodianship we hope to share with our partners and supporters.
Dane Marx - Positive Change For Marine Life
Winning the $1,500 award from Southern Cross Credit Union’s Community Goals program will be a massive help to our organisation. This money will go directly into feeding and caring for the animals that we have rescued and are in our care. We currently have 14 sea turtles, one seabird and one sea snake in our care. With this kind of support we can give the best possible care to these animals so they can be released back into the wild.
Kelsey Banister, Australian Seabird Rescue Assistant to the General Manager
