Zoos Victoria is committed to helping Australians become smarter phone users. Mobile phones donated to They're Calling on You raises much needed funds for primate conservation and reduces the demand for conflict minerals, such as coltan.
Zoos Victoria is working with conservation partners, Gorilla Doctors, who are protecting gorillas in the wild by securing their numbers through medical care, saving a species one patent at a time. Funds generated through the refurbishment and resale of old mobile phones through our recycling partners, PhoneCycle, support both Gorilla Doctors work in Africa and our own conservation programs.
Together we can improve animal care, reduce threatening processes and save endangered species.
