Banrock bear boost
Banrock Station Wines, from South Australia, has donated funds to support WWF’s work with the Norwegian Polar Institute. Part of this work includes WWF’s famous Polar Bear Tracker website.
Banrock raises funds for international environmental projects by donating part of the proceeds from every worldwide purchase of its wines. So far it has raised more than US $1.5 million to rehabilitating wetlands in particular. The Banrock Station property itself includes 3,400 acres of bushland and extensive wetlands that are being carefully restored to their natural state.
The success at Banrock Station encouraged Banrock to make annual donations to save and restore nature reserves throughout the world. Currently, Banrock Station’s wetland sponsorships spans ten countries throughout the globe. More recently, their sponsorship has extended to other conservation projects in other countries, including Norway.
