Goodman Fielder PNG has sponsored K10, 000 towards the completion of the Port Moresby Nature Park’s Reptile Haus exhibit.
Goodman Fielder PNG’s Events and Sponsorship Executive Ms Jenny Johnson said, “Goodman Fielder is happy to support the opening of the Reptile Haus exhibit and likes to contribute funds towards worthwhile initiatives such as this one.”
Ms Johnson also added, ‘We like the idea of preserving wildlife and educating the public about conservation and the environment.”
The new reptile exhibit will house different reptile species of snakes, lizards and monitors. It will serve as an education centre to visitors and students alike on school excursion programs. There will be an extensive signage campaign for the exhibit that will provide information on snake bite prevention while highlighting the uniqueness of PNG’s reptile species.
"The facility will open up opportunities for future research and conservation programs."
At the Cheque presentation Nature Park’s General Manager Ms Michelle McGeorge said, “We’re very excited to finally be launching our long awaited Reptile Haus that has been in the making for two years.”
“The design of the Reptile Haus exhibit will meet international zoo standards as is the policy of the Park to construct facilities that are of international standards and can be seen in a zoo facility worldwide,” Ms McGeorge said.
The entire facility will include educational signage and internal decoration of the exhibits to make it suitable for the reptiles that will be housed inside.
The launch of the Nature Park’s Reptile Haus will be celebrated with a variety of activities that include snake presentations ever the weekends from 7 September – 13 October 2019.
