Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors Ltd was
established in 2002, initially by Steve and Terri Irwin, as a way to
include and involve other caring people to support the protection of
injured, threatened or endangered wildlife – from the individual
animal to an entire species.
Irwin Wildlife Reserve (SIWR) is being threatened by strip
mining. Cape Alumina Pty Ltd has lodged mining lease applications
which include approximately 12,300 ha of the Reserve. Cape Alumina
company documents indicate an intention to mine 50 plus million tons
over a 10 year period commencing 2010. The greater part of this mine
is on SIWR
There is a crisis in the reptile community, a crisis of apathy. We are beset by interests that would end the
hobby and business that all of us love. Animal Rights groups have
been on the march for eight years on a national campaign to end
reptile ownership state by state. They have successfully enacted
their model legislation and restricted private ownership of many
reptiles in about a dozen states.

Our April meeting will be geared
to educating our visitors with a Show & Tell, Swap Sell.
This is a great way to show off your favorite reptiles and to sell
if you have a class III permit. You do not need a permit just to
exhibit as you fall under the JHS permit at the MOSH. So bring all
your reptiles and set-up a table, so all our member and the visitors
at the MOSH can enjoy seeing them.
