South Australian Government: Stop the closure of Warrawong Wildlife Sanctuary in South Australia

      David Miller

      North Vancouver, Canada

Warrawong is home to many near extinct native animals and we cannot let this treasure close. Moving animals from their natural habitat to a man made zoo is such a bad idea! Platypus, Bandicoots, Batongs, Tamar Wallabies and so on.... The list goes on and we need to stop the closure of this last bit of Australia!

      Warrawong allows the animals to live in their natural environment and stops the land and bush being destroyed. It is a lovely peaceful place to visit and spend time.

      The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.

      I don't see the logic of moving wildlife to a contained environment.

      I visited it many years ago, and wish I could again. If I lived in SA, I would have been there often.
