Wildlife Habitat Launches Opportunity To Adopt Animals

To Adopt An Animal online today, visit our adoption page!


Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas is now giving animal lovers the chance to adopt their favourite Australian animals through an initiative called “Habitat Heroes”. When you adopt an animal, you will be helping Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas preserve some of the most endangered and vulnerable species in the region.

There are seven different adoption levels available that are ideal for individuals, businesses looking to get involved in corporate social responsibility initiatives, and schools who are wanting to get their students involved.

Some of Wildlife Habitat’s favourite residents like Tia the koala, Quinton the Lumholtz’s tree-kangaroo and Cassie the Southern Cassowary are just a few of the animals available for adoption.

Each adoption level gives you different benefits which range from newsletter updates about Wildlife Habitat and the animals to private behind the scenes tours of the park.

Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas is delighted to be able to offer something special for guests to participate in, and give them an opportunity to really make a difference and an impact on wildlife conservation. The range of different levels of sponsorship make it a perfect gift idea as well as giving businesses an opportunity to do their part in wildlife conservation.

When you adopt an animal, your contribution will assist us with

  • Threatened species breeding programs
  • Animal husbandry
  • Food & exhibit maintenance
  • Vet requirements
  • And Rehabilitation of native animals brought to our onsite Wildlife Care Centre

The Wildlife Care Centre is currently funded by the generosity of The Woodward Family CaPTA Group and from donations. Presently the centre costs the family business in excess of fifty thousand dollars a year to run.

Yearly, hundreds of sick, injured and orphaned native animals in the surround community are brought to us by concerned citizens of the Douglas Shire. Wildlife Habitat assists in the rehabilitation, veterinary provision and wild release of these animals.
