WVS Australia

Mon 15th Jun 2015

WVS Australia is launching!

We are launching our Australian division this Saturday, with brand ambassador and National Geographic Channel personality, Matt Wright, the Outback Wrangler.

We will be establishing in Melbourne to provide services to animal welfare and conservation charities and projects based in the Australian, Polynesian and Melanesian regions.

Chopper pilot and animal expert, Matthew Wright has spent his life in the great outdoors drawn to creatures that most of us would run away from. Raised in the wilds of Papua New Guinea and the Australian outback, Matt became comfortable with wildlife, including deadly snakes, spiders and sharks, at a young age. Matt Wright is the perfect ambassador for WVS. 
 
The launch will announce new projects: the provision of Veterinary services to Bung Yarnda Indigenous community, in Gippsland Victoria; the opening of a new Veterinary International Training centre based in Thailand, to be supported with Australian expertise and, epidemiological studies related to crocodile behaviour in Australia and Papua New Guinea.
