The Toxfree Kwinana Team have proudly donated an unused fire hose reel from site to the Orang-utan enclosure at Perth Zoo.
Orang-utans’ are extremely clever and very strong, so fire hoses are one of the very few items that they won’t destroy quickly. The fire hoses are a great way of providing more complexity to their habitat while increasing the amount of usable space in their enclosure.
Donated fire hoses can be used to create structures such as platforms, hammocks and hanging ropes. The fire hoses provide opportunities to climb, swing and nest high above the ground as many primates would in the wild.
Perth Zoo will kindly be hanging a plaque near the enclosure in thanks for Toxfree’s generous efforts.
