The Wilson HTM Foundation supported the Taronga Conservation Society Australia’s frog breeding and research programs at Taronga Zoo. In 2007 and 2008 the program supported the zoo breeding and release of two endangered frog species: the Booroolong and the Corroboree Frog. In 2009, support was directed to a ground-breaking inoculation program to protect frogs against the devastating global Chytrid Fungus. These three years of support have directly impacted on the chances of survival of these endangered native amphibians, and we are thankful for Wilson HTM Foundation’s financial support as well as the wonderful interest and engagement of Wilson HTM staff with Taronga. It was a hugely successful three year partnership.
“The Wilson HTM Foundation has been delighted to partner with an institution of the international reputation and prestige of Taronga. It is wonderful that the Society has the foresight and planning to effectively identify projects which can benefit from relatively small donations. Through our partnership we have really been able to make a tangible contribution to their work and share in Taronga’s research success. Our staff are immensely proud of the relationship, which has enabled them and their clients to engage at many levels with the Zoo across many years.” Mary Jung, Community Investment Manager, Wilson HTM Investment Group.
