Australian and New Zealand Federation of Animal Societies
ANZFAS is a federation of some 40 animal welfare and animal rights organizations founded in 1980. The ANZFAS principle purpose is to promote the cause of animal rights and welfare throughout Australia and New Zealand.
ANZFAS policy on Zoos
ANZFAS is opposed to the keeping of animals in zoos. ANZFAS calls for a phase-out of zoos. Until such time, ANZFAS calls for funds collected from zoo operations to be given towards the protection of endangered species habitats. The quality of life for zoo animals, irrespective of whether they have been taken from the wild or bred in captivity, can be extremely poor. Zoos in their present form provide stressful living conditions because they keep animals confined in unnatural environments. As a result, most zoo animals suffer from caging, lack of exercise and from inadequate social and environmental stimulation. ANZFAS believes that, given the unnatural way most zoos display animals, they have little educational value. While open-range zoos provide significantly better conditions than most, they contribute to the survival of lower-standard zoos by their demand for, and supply of, animals.

Unfortunately Queensland lacks a world class state zoo such as Melbourne or Taronga. I cannot see this being remidied in the future. Such a zoo would have to be in Brisbane (population and tourism numbers), fairly large in area and with excellent public transport access. There are two areas that come to mind, the Mt Cootha Botanical Gardens and the former Roma Street Goods Yard. Mount Cootha Zoological and Botanic Gardens has an excellent ring about it. Owned by the Brisbane City Council it is close to the city and has excellent existing a menities.The gardens are beautiful and animal exhibits could be easily incorporated. But this is not going to happen.

Kawau Island Wallabies
"Extinct" wallabies alive, well and in New Zealand
"These wallabies represent genetic stock that no longer exists in Australia" The remnants of a genetically distinct South Australian wallaby population considered extinct for nearly a century has been "rediscovered" by Marsupial CRC researchers – living as a pest in New Zealand. DNA sampling by Marsupial Cooperative Research Centre scientist Dr Andrea Taylor has established that an introduced colony of tammar wallabies living on Kawau Island, 55 kilometres north-east of Auckland, is almost certainly comprised of the descendants of a wallaby population that vanished from mainland South Australia in the early 1900s. "Prior to the turn of the century there were at least two morphologically-distinct populations of tammar wallaby living in South Australia," said Dr Taylor. "There's only one population left, on Kangaroo Island and two other islands where the Kangaroo Island wallabies were introduced. The sampling established that there was only a three per cent chance that the Kawau colony was founded from Kangaroo Island, which makes this New Zealand population quite precious. They represent genetic stock that no longer exists in Australia." The Kawau Island wallabies – known there as damas – were shipped to New Zealand in the late 1800s by New Zealand's then-governor, Sir George Grey, who took the post immediately after his governorship of South Australia. Grey bought the 2000 hectare island in 1862 and stocked it with reminders of his postings in Australia and South Africa, including zebra, antelope, kookaburras and tammar and parma wallabies. The wallabies flourished, to the extent that in the 1950s-60s they overran attempts to establish farms on the island.

STOCK EXCHANGE CLIMATE TIME ZONE ... RECREATION New Zealand is a unique country. Its scenery sets it apart from the rest of the world while its people have a reputation for friendliness, strength and independence. There is abundant beauty and diversity in scenery, lifestyle and culture. From rolling green farmlands to barren volcanic desert areas, from golden beaches with clear blue water to majestic snow covered mountains, New Zealand offers a sample of every possible landscape within a relatively small country.
New Zealand is situated in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. With two main islands - North and South Island - and other outlying islands, New Zealand encompasses an area comparable in size to Great Britain and Japan, but with a population of only 3.8 million it is one of the world's least crowded countries. The capital city, Wellington (population approximately 400,000) , and New Zealand's largest city, Auckland (population approximately 1,000,000) , are both situated in the North Island. Life in these two cities offers the convenient luxury of being both five minutes from beautiful beaches and just three hours from the mountain ski-fields. In fact, anywhere in New Zealand you are never more than two - three hours from the sandy beaches or rugged coastline. There are many lakes and rivers throughout the country and we make the most of these by enjoying leisure and action activities from fly fishing to jet boating. Other major cities and towns are Auckland, Hamilton (population 120,000), Palmerston North (population approximately 75,000), Christchurch (population approximately 400,000) and Dunedin (population approximately 110,000).

This publication presents results, in respect of the 1996-97 financial year, from the first Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) census of organisations engaged in the operation of zoological gardens and aquaria, botanic gardens, and national and recreational parks.
The scope of the census was all employing businesses and statutory authorities classified to Class 9231, Zoological and Botanic Gardens and Class 9239, Recreational Parks and Gardens of the Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC). In addition, the botanic gardens, national parks and recreational parks and gardens activities of Commonwealth, State and local government authorities were included in the census even though these organisations are defined to another class of ANZSIC.
The publication has three parts, the first part presents data about zoological gardens and aquaria, the second about botanic gardens and the third national parks and recreational parks and gardens. The publication is one of a series to be issued in respect of 1996-97 covering cultural industries, which were partially funded by the Cultural Ministers' Council.

Kiwanis International - NZSP Division Two (Waikato) and Australia Division Six (Melbourne) Lisa's Trip Report A report on Lisa Woolerton's trip to Australia as part of the 1998 Kiwanis Australia - New Zealand Youth Exchange. Text and photograph by Lisa Woolerton Going to Australia has been one of the highlights of my life. I met many different people from all different backgrounds but mainly those people came from the big city that I was overawed by. To me, Melbourne is so far the biggest city I have ever seen, and is also the most exciting. I was given the opportunity to participate in activities such as visiting zoos, where I saw Australian Native Animals like the eagles, wombats, flying foxes, snakes and at the other zoo I saw bicens, buffalos, and rhinoceros. There was only one hiccup with my trip, I went when there was no gas available for showers, heaters or cooking. Never mind though, I still had a fantastic time. I arrived at the Melbourne Airport and was given a big warm welcome to Australia by Alan and Ivy Wren. I ate lunch with them and they took me to the place where I was to spend my first few nights in Australia. When I was staying with the McLennan family I was taken to the Queen Victoria Market, up the Rialto (which is a really tall building) from which we could see a lot of Melbourne, and the Healesville Sanctuary. This is where we saw the native animals such as the wombats and snakes (both of which I touched), and the eagles, platypus and flying foxes. We also visited the IMAX cinema (here there was a really big screen) and saw a documentary on The Elephant Kingdom. For dinner, my host family presented me with kangaroo meat and chicken sausages. I had never eaten these before so I was surprised that I liked them.
