Save The Zoo Campaign

Save The Zoo

From Protectors of Public Lands (Victoria): Notice of “Save The Zoo” Publicity Campaign at the Zoo Twilight Concert Series Fridays and Saturdays evenings 31 January to 8 March 2014

Your help is needed for this Friday 31 January 2014 and Saturday 1 February 2014 to hand out flyers and put up signs. We need volunteers for both the main entrance and the north entrance of the Zoo.

You are asked to gather at 4:30 pm at the main Zoo entrance in Elliott Avenue for a “briefing”, to get tasks for the “community information session” and to get materials.

We aim to talk to Zoo patrons leaving the Zoo when it closes at 5 pm then catch the attendees at the Twilight Concert as they queue at the entrances.

We plan to stay until about 6 pm by this time when the concert goers have gone into the Zoo grounds. See photo by Sue Jackson (above) from an earlier action at the Zoo over the EW Link.

Why the campaign? Its not a “protest” but a campaign to inform the public over the certain impact on the animals of the East West Link Elliott Avenue spaghetti interchange with on/off ramps to Flemington Road. See attached community flyer headed “Save the Zoo”.

How to get there. See Melways Map 29 12 E Parking is at the Zoo carparks on either side of the main entrance roundabout. Tram down or up Royal Parade get off at Walker Street and walk over The Avenue then to a roundabout. Go left and you will arrive at the main entrance of the Zoo. By cycle there are lots of bicycle paths.

Please email Julianne Bell on jbell5[AT] with your name and day you would be available to attend.  For enquiries ring Mobile: 0408022408 We look forward to seeing you at the Zoo!
