Ferrero-owned Kinder’s AUS$30,000 ($21,000) donation will fund a new hospital facility equipped with specialised surgical equipment and three Intensive Care Units.
The improvements mean Cedar Creek’s team can continue to provide a critical service for local animals; expanding its recovery program for injured or displaced wombats and increasing capacity for other vulnerable wildlife.
Roz Holme, founder of Cedar Creek Wombat Rescue said: “Kinder’s generous donation means so much to us here at Cedar Creek. Their support means we can start work on a new hospital facility that will allow us to save more wombats and injured animals.”
The contribution is part of Kinder’s ongoing partnership with the Australian Wildlife Society which has delivered more than $100,000 in vital funds to support communities across Australia and New Zealand.
Marta Bako, head of brand for Kinder said: “Kinder’s Natoons range aims to promote awareness and education for endangered animals through play. We are incredibly proud of our partnership with AWS which allows us to support community groups like Cedar Creek to protect Australia’s unique wildlife.”
