"Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium is greatly concerned about the devastating impact of the bushfires on Australian wildlife and their habitats," said Dr. Cheryl Morris, vice president of conservation at Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium. "We are committed to supporting Australia’s zoos working on the front lines of this fight to care for injured wildlife. Currently their needs are primarily financial to provide the emergency veterinary care required. We will continue to monitor their situation over the coming weeks and months to assist in the care, preservation and restoration following this devastation."
Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium is sending two donations of $2,500 each to organizations assisting with the emergency care needed for animals in Australia.
Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium is home to more than a dozen animals native to Australia and some endangered plants. Visit the complete list below:
