Straps Up High - Wagga Wagga 4WD Club
On 20 November, about 40 members of the Wagga Wagga Four Wheel Drive Club Inc visited Altina Wildlife Park at Darlington Point to present around 180 straps and slings to benefit the animals of the Park as part of the state-wide 4WD NSW and ACT Straps up High project.
The straps and slings (weighing about 450kg) were obsolete ones kindly donated by Rodney's Transport Services, The Riverina Co-Operative Society Ltd and club members, with club members John and Brenda Moore co-ordinating the effort.
Not only will these straps benefit the animals and the wildlife park, the environment will also benefit because the straps will not end up in landfill.
A certificate, which is now on proud display in the Altina visitors centre, was presented to Altina to mark the occasion.
