During the past year, over $500 of donations have been gathered by the Wet Tropics Management Authority (WTMA), for their very popular wildlife posters and “take care” cassowary bumper stickers. “The money raised goes directly to a very worthy cause- caring for our Wet Tropics wildlife” said Dr Jenkins.
Jean Housley, Media officer for TWR, said the money will be used for more snake handling equipment for TWR members who have been recently completed their certified snake removal training.
TWR and WTMA are organising a snake information session in Kuranda in early March 2015. Keep your eyes out for further information about this upcoming event.
