About the Event

Thursday, February 13, 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.

In response to the catastrophic bushfires in Australia, Zoo New England hosted All for Australia, an evening ticketed fundraiser inside Franklin Park Zoo’s Tropical Forest Pavilion. All event proceeds benefit Zoos Victoria’s Bushfire Emergency Wildlife Fund, which is supporting the critical care and long-term recovery of Australian wildlife. 

We are only at the beginning of what is certain to be a long and difficult recovery from this ecological crisis. Zoo New England is dedicated to saving animals in the wild and will continue to support the Australian community and wildlife affected by this disaster. Franklin Park Zoo is home to a number of animals native to Australia including red kangaroo, emu, Gouldian finch, black swan, tawny frogmouth, laughing kookaburra, Australian walking stick, blue-tongued skink, sulphur crested cockatoo, budgerigar, palm cockatoo, and more.
