Here at Australia Zoo we just love animals – from the tiniest lizard to the tallest giraffe! Australia Zoo is a great environment for our animals – it provides not only a haven for our collection of over one hundred different species including Steve’s favourites the Crocodile, Tiger, and Cheetah, but is also a great platform for those same animals to act as ambassadors for their cousins in the wild. This gives Australia Zoo the ability to educate the world about animal conservation and to increase the chances of protecting all wildlife.
