Zoos Victoria's commitment to sustainability has seen it become the world's first carbon neutral zoo. As their partner since 2013, it has been a pleasure to have helped them achieve this milestone through the installation of solar panels across all three zoos.
But that's not the only way we partner with Zoos Victoria to care for animals. AGL and Zoos Victoria have banded together to establish a dedicated team, the AGL Marine Response Unit. Rescuing and rehabilitating injured and distressed marine animals in and around Port Phillip Bay.
Port Philip Bay is home to a diverse range of birds and marine animals including seals, dolphins, penguins, and turtles. More and more, this marine life is coming under threat from discarded rubbish such as fishing lines and plastics.
Since it was established, the AGL Marine Response Unit has responded to over 500 calls from the public. This ability of the unit to now respond quickly to calls for assistance is giving seals and other marine creatures a better chance of rescue and recovery. If you see injured or distressed marine wildlife, phone the AGL Marine Response Unit immediately on 1300 AGL MRU (1300 245 678).
