Zoo Studio Foundation Welcomes New Board Member
Did you know Zoo Studio established a charity in 2014? Ever since Zoo Studio was born we’ve raised money for Australian animals and causes, and the Zoo Studio Foundation was established to give us a platform and structure to support these efforts on a greater scale.
We’re excited to announce we have a new director for Zoo Studio Foundation in 2015. Di Bensley joins us with great experience in operations and project management, and provides the perfect final piece to our puzzle of skills! Our other members include Ken Drake (Creative and Photography), Beck Drake (Marketing and Sales) and Dr Joanne Redburn (Legal and Regulatory structure and process). You can find out more about us here.
Di is the founder and CEO of Paws & Relax, a Brisbane-based premier doggy day care, grooming and training centre providing positive experiences. Di is a practical all-rounder, bringing experience from a different side of the industry to our Foundation. She has wonderful connections through her work in training and with rescue organisations, and brings a new voice and opinions to our charity. Di’s experience ranges from government and private organisations to the not-for-profit sector and community organisations.
In 2015 we’re intending to raise over $90,000 through the projects we’re working on, for the benefit of organisations such as the RSPCA, Qld Staffy Rescue, German Shepherd Dogs in Need, and Chihuahua Rescue. Our projects range from book and calendar production and sale (like our 2015 German Shepherds calendar) to fundraising and raising awareness. Stay tuned for more in 2015!
We’re certain as a board member Di will add significant value, keep us all in check, and help us maintain a realistic outlook whilst our Foundation continues to reach for the stars to help animals where we see the opportunity.
