Robert Irwin invested by Scouts Queensland
Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors have become the major charity partner of Scouts Queensland. Marking the beginning of the partnership, Robert Irwin has taken on an ambassador role to inspire our younger generation to be involved in wildlife and conservation.
This partnership will see approximately 15,000 Scouts across Queensland engage in the vital conservation efforts undertaken by Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors through exciting initiatives including Wildlife Warrior’s Backyard Campout, Run on the Wild Side and participating in the Visionary Wildlife Warrior Program.
“I am delighted that Scouts Qld will be working with Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors and Robert Irwin to promote conservation and to raise awareness of the challenges that the World’s Wildlife faces as this is a mutually beneficial partnership. Scouting is the world’s largest youth leadership organisation and encourages the development of young people to take a constructive place in society as members of their local, National and International communities. This exciting new adventure will assist us in educating young people about global environmental issues” said Daryl G. Scott, Chief Commissioner.
Scouting is a worldwide movement that has shaped the development of youth and adults for more than 100 years. Scouts are in every part of our community and provide young people aged 6 to 25 with fun and challenging opportunities to grow through adventure.
With Scouts being the biggest and most successful youth organisation in Australia, Wildlife Warriors are excited to be involved in educating our future leaders about the importance of conservation in our natural world.
