Park struggling to stay afloat

Main Stories

THE Port Moresby Nature Park has been doing its best to comply with Covid-19 restrictions, chief executive officer Michelle McGeorge says.
She said this after Swire Shipping donated K30,000 to the park’s ‘Wildlife Appeal’ target.
The donation was made in response to an article published by The Guardian outlining the park’s struggle to survive during the Covid-19 pandemic.
McGeorge said the park was trying to keep its head above water with the drop in visitors due to Covid-19 restrictions.
“It has certainly been a tough few months for the nature park between doing our best to comply with Covid-19 restrictions and trying to keep our head above water with the drop in visitation due to the same restrictions,” she said.
“But, with donations like this, we had been able to reach 70 per cent of our targeted goal thus far.
“And we are hoping to reach the remaining 30 per cent in a couple of weeks to close off the campaign.”
She said the park remained dedicated to the care and welfare of its 550-plus wildlife residents and for those who wished to support the Nature Park Wildlife Appeal, they could make donations directly to: Port Moresby Nature Park Bank South Pacific Account: 1007071564.
