根據外媒報導,在過去的十多年之中,鱷魚先生的家族成員不但幫忙救援照顧超過9萬多隻的小動物,甚至更不遺餘力地投身於近期延燒超過4個月的澳洲野火!


對此,身為鱷魚先生子女的他們不但跟老爸一樣都非常熱愛動物,為了延續老爸遺志更是對於因為野火而身受其害的小動物們極力搶救!他們表示:「雖然家族所擁有的動物園及保護區沒被野火影響到,但為了拯救小動物,園區中的野生動物醫院從來沒有這麼忙過~」

據了解,澳洲野生動物醫院每年都會拯救超過6000隻以上的小動物,而且因為每種動物都需要不同的照顧方式,因此花費不但相當可觀,自從去年9月延燒至今的澳洲野火更是讓救援的任務變得更加艱難!


不過即便如此,熱愛大自然的厄文家族仍不遺餘力地默默付出,並幫大家守護這些珍貴的小動物們。

另外,鱷魚先生當初與老婆為了保護野生動物,因此便在2002年一起創立這間澳洲野生動物醫院!如今即便身為創辦人之一的鱷魚先生已先行一步,但他的妻小仍未忘初心的化身為「澳洲動物守護者」,並透過各種不同的項目極力維護境內的各種原生動物!

而且更棒的是,澳洲動物園也會將所有收益用在保育動物上,讓每一個進園參觀的民眾都能一起為小動物們出一份心力!


想必只有真心熱愛動物的人,才有辦法如此的默默付出吧!不知道大家看到這邊,是否也覺得厄文一家人真的很偉大呢?
