Visa to Support Wildlife Conservation in Australia

Card and digital payments company Visa has entered into a long-term partnership with Taronga Conservation Society Australia, becoming the preferred payment partner at Taronga Zoo in Sydney and Taronga Western Plains Zoo in Dubbo.

The three-year-long partnership will see Visa supporting Taronga’s conservation projects, which will in the future expand to support Taronga’s ongoing Koala conservation work and education around Koalas.

Taronga is a globally recognised leader in wildlife conservation and has been honoured with the prestigious World Association of Zoos and Aquarium (WAZA) Conservation Award.

Through its breed and release conservation programs of vulnerable Australian species including the greater bilby, Chuditch, and regent honeyeater, as well as wildlife care and rehabilitation at the two Taronga Wildlife Hospitals, Taronga has been able to release more than 55,000 animals back into the wild.

“At Taronga, we are selective about our corporate partnerships. We want to partner and work with brands that are aligned with our vision of securing a shared future for wildlife and people. We admire Visa’s commitment to sustainability and protecting the planet, which is why we are proud to welcome them as a corporate partner,” Taronga Conservation Society Australia CEO Cameron Kerr AO said.
