MANSFIELD ZOO FUNDRAISER!


Camp out under the stars and wake up to the lions roar at our annual fundraiser held at Mansfield Zoo, put your work boots on and get your hands dirty to raise money for Five Freedoms Animal Rescue and to help out privately owned Mansfield Zoo

Mansfield Zoo is set on 30 acres of picturesque parkland with animals such as lions, monkeys and crocodiles... and now meerkats ๐Ÿ˜† Not only will you get to camp for the weekend but you will also get to hand feed all the domestic animals, go on a tour around the zoo and experience an exclusive talk from one of their head zookeepers! 

Hereโ€™s a bit more about Five Freedoms Animal rescue, they help our shelter with the darting of kangaroos that are too mobile to be rescued. They are an amazing shelter and have been rescuing for over 30 years!  http://fivefreedoms.com.au

Both Mansfield Zoo and Five Freedoms do not get any government funding so this is a great way to have fun, volunteer and support our local wildlife.

All Transport to and from the zoo and all meals can be provided. Money raised will go directly to Five Freedoms Animal Rescue.

Everyone, including families are welcome to be a part of this event. Get in touch with us to find out more.
