COVID-19 STATEMENT AND FAQ'S
Following recent Government announcements, and the increase of confirmed COVID-19 cases both nationally and on the Gold Coast, the decision has been made to temporarily close Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary effective from Monday, 23rd of March 2020. Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary will continue to be guided by advice of Queensland Health and the Australian Government.
As a result of this closure, unfortunately many team members have been temporarily stood-down. A skeleton team will be kept on to ensure the care of all animals and the maintenance of the site. The Currumbin Wildlife Hospital will remain open to treat wildlife patients.
The decision has been made to ensure the long-term viability and sustainability of the business, and most importantly to secure future jobs for our team members.
We are engaging with our team members to support them during this difficult period, including providing access to their accrued leave entitlements.
We are also working actively with all levels of Government during this difficult time.
