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.

Click here for Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve

The Steve 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.

JHS Upcoming Events


 Show & Tell, Swap & Sell

  Apr 6

Monthly Meeting 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.

  Apr 12

MVP  (JHS Museum Volunteer Program at MOSH ) JHS is  looking for JHS members to volunteer a few hours at our table. MVP is from 10 AM until 3 PM. Come anytime you can and stay as long as you want. I know you will enjoy it!
