Nature Park Launches Wild Life Appeal

Share the News

Port Moresby Nature Park has launched its urgent public and corporate Wildlife Appeal to help with the costs to feed and look after the wildlife in its care.

As a registered charitable organisation, Port Moresby Nature Park derives 70% of its income through visitation and local business support.

Since the State of Emergency, the Park’s visitation has dropped over 75% and a number of PNG businesses have been unable to support.

Park CEO Michelle McGeorge says they have tried to remain optimistic throughout the last few months of the COVID-19 pandemic but the dramatic decrease in visitation has put financial pressure on the organization.

It costs K110, 000 per month to look after the Park’s 550+ native animals including other vital services.

Donations to the Appeal can be made through either direct deposit to the Park’s BSP Bank account:

Port Moresby Nature Park, Account Number 1007071564, BSB 088202 with the reference “Wildlife Appeal”

or at www.GoFundMe.com under “Port Moresby Nature Park’s Wildlife Appeal”  or by a direct donation made at the Nature Park’s gift shop.
