Mother’s Day is just around the corner and what better way to show your mum she’s your hero than to adopt an animal in her name and make her a ‘Habitat Hero’.

Or you could adopt an animal yourself and become a wildlife mother in time for Mother’s Day.

An initiative of the Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Habitat Heroes allows you to sponsor an iconic Australian native animal living in the park.

Wildlife Habitat Assistant Manager, Sybella Salter, said your valuable donation would go towards assisting with threatened species breeding programs for some of Australia’s more vulnerable species, as well as vet requirements, food, exhibit maintenance and animal husbandry.

“Mother’s Day is the one day of the year that is purely for Mum,” she said.

“Everyone knows how much mum’s do for their families day in and day out. You could give gifts, flowers, or wine and although perhaps well earned, nothing would mean more than to show your Mum your thanks than to make her a ‘Habitat Hero’.

Habitat Heroes receive a certificate, a photo of your adopted animal, a wallpaper picture for your devices, a monthly newsletter and more.

Jump on to Wildlife Habitat today and show mum she is your hero this Mother’s Day, Sunday 10 May.
