NSW fundraiser no connection to Tasmania


Tasmania's Parks and Wildlife Service has no connection with a telephone fundraising campaign being conducted by the New South Wales-based Foundation for National Parks and Wildlife.

The PWS in the Department of Environment, Parks, Heritage and the Arts, has received a number of inquiries from the public in recent weeks expressing concern about the foundation's fundraising.

PWS General Manager Peter Mooney said the foundation was offering people a stuffed animal in exchange for a donation that it said would go to fund conservation projects around Australia.

"We are concerned that people have perceived that this call is from the PWS in Tasmania, which is simply not the case.

"The Tasmanian PWS is in no way connected to this organisation," Mr Mooney said.
