April TravelSmart  prize Battery World Eneloop Recharger Kit

GoSee TravelSmart Club member winner for April of the Battery World Eneloop Recharger Kit isGus Steinbauer, Acton Park. Tasmania. GoSee supporter Roger Langham at Battery WorldGeelong is the source of the Sanyo Ni-MH Battery Charger model MQN04 and 4 pack of AAEneloop Batteries valued at $21.95.

GoSee uses new generation rechargeable batteries like the Eneloop ready-to-use low dischargebatteries. The Eneloop which is exculsive to Battery World is a handy caravanning and campingproduct. Now there is no mistaking Eneloop rechargeables, (pictured) they are the Glitterati of themodern, diverse Battery World displays across Australia. The Special Glitter batteries highlight theyare rechargeable rather than recyclable.

GoSee believes rechargeable is the responsible way to go in areas like household batteries andcamping needs. Eneloop batteries are rechargeable up to 1,500 times and can hold charge up tothree years when not in use. Four AA Nickel Metal Hydride batteries come with the packagedcharger from Battery World. The batteries are pre-charged so they can be put straight to work.

Only Nickel Metal Hydride AA and AAA HR-3U and HR-4U rechargeable batteries should beused in the Sanyo made charger. Please remove and discard the plastic isolator on the chargercontacts as the batteries are removed from the charger for the first time. Also please note that AAand AAA batteries cannot be charged together in one charger channel and single batteries cannot becharged in one channel so two and four batteries must be charged at the same time.

AA and AAA type batteries cannot be placed side by side in the charger slots nor will the chargerlight up its green LED charging lights if batteries are placed in the left and right charging slots only.It is important not to add additional batteries to the charger during the charging cycle as theprotective timer (about 16 hours) will not be initiated. Rechargeable batteries like the Eneloophandle high drain use. That means digital cameras, toys, game controllers and remote controls.

Under the Clean up Australia program 5c per battery is donated to Clean Up Australia.

Mogo Zoo prize once child entry pass: The winner is Tim Cody, Greenway. ACT.

Founded on thevision of Bill and Sally Padey who got things rolling in 1989 Mogo Zoo is a founding member of theAustralasian Species Management Program and plays a leading role in various breeding programs.

In July 2006 the zoo successfully bred two white lion cubs. Since then Mogo Zoo has developed aninternationally recognised white lion breeding program.

Mogo Zoo says white lions occur naturally in the wild but do not live long lives. White is tooconspicuous a shade in their native environment for that. But there are greater dangers to the survivalof beautiful animals than occur in the wild.

Mogo Zoo is about conservation and preservation and in today's imperfect world it is a task whichreally challenges. On the dark side illegal animal trade could mean that a white lion skin changeshands for up to $300,000.

The zoo's conservation work in relation to the endangered Red Panda is also recognisedinternationally.

Mogo is not government funded and relies heavily on business sponsorship. Mogo Zoo is out of the ordinary with staff who, know love and want to share their fascination with beautiful animals.

You can help too by going to see the white lions and their friends when you next GoSee to theNSW South Coast.

Lemurs come from Madagascar. They are an endangered species as forest clearing, agriculture,logging and mining is destroying their habitat. Orana Wildlife Park is part of the internationalzoo-based breeding program for the species.

Orana Wildlife Park sets out to educate people on the plight of these beautiful animals and to securea genetically sound back-up population should anything happen to all of the wild Lemurs.

Hazel Stone of Orana Wildlife Park says - We feed the Lemurs during a popular daily publicpresentation. We use this opportunity to deliver a conservation message to our visitors of what theycan do to help this species in the wild.

Since Lemurs are affected by habitat loss we ask our visitors to be responsible consumers.

We currently have four Black and White Ruffed Lemurs at the park. Rumel and Jerry are the

parents of Ala and Afo, who were born here in 1998, Hazel Stone said.

Ala, who was once the bottom of the group, is now the first to approach visitors during our uniqueencounters where visitors get to hand feed these gentle primates, she said.

Lemurs are primitive primates. They have evolved into at least 40 species. They are largelyvegetarians and their society is dominated by the females. Orana Wildlife Park has two species,Ringtailed Lemur and Black and White Ruffed Lemur. Ruffed Lemurs are known as the Dogs ofthe Forest because of their loud barking call. Sixteen scheduled animal feeds occur daily and areaccompanied by a presentation from a wildlife guide.
