World Animal Day - 4 October 2015

By Chris R.
Sunday the 4th of October marks World Animal Day. This event was developed with a mission to raise the status of animals, in order to improve animal welfare standards around the globe.  World Animal Day is celebrated in different ways in every country, irrespective of nationality, religion, faith or political ideology. Through increased awareness and education we can create a world where animals are recognised as sentient beings and full regard is paid to their welfare.

Possum Valley will celebrate World Animal Day by spending the day planting a range of possum and bird friendly shrubs, including bottlebrush, emu bush and banksia.  These plants can be used for forage for both the wild animals with which we share the property and also for the enrichment of animals in care. 

We ask our supporters to post a picture of their favourite animal on our Facebook page, sharing their love for the creatures with which we share the planet. 

Finally, we will also be attending the Human Chain Rally to prevent live exports, see: for further information.
