Our Core Missions

Our Core Missions

Our core missions include aiding special animals at risk of neglect, threat or abuse. We are open to all category of animals, wild, farm, or domestic, whether they are on the land, in the sea, or in the air. We do specialised work, for and with, wildlife animals that are listed as threatened or endangered as a species, and in particular those with special needs like the critically endangered species in the wild or in unethical captive situations. Our ground work operations are imperative, but we also know from experience that education is a key ingredient to prevent many negative impacts upon animals and the environment. Therefore we also incorporate educational presentations and programs into our rescue work for communities, school groups, business’s, governments and the tourism industry. No matter which core mission area we are working in, communication is vital in reaching the source of the problem and finding the solution.

Animals At Risk

A core mission of ours is to help animals at risk of neglect or abuse. We specialize in wildlife animals that are either threatened or endangered as a species, wild or captive.

We receive referrals from around the world from those seeking for help with animals at risk that need protection, rescue or rehabilitation. These animals that need help are often found to be in dire circumstances of neglect or abuse, due to human/animal conflict, human financial or sociopolitical situations of no fault of the animals.

It is a core mission of Cee4Life to respond to these referrals and activate help for these animals.

Conservation Projects

We work with our partners in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region in conservation projects to help save threatened wildlife animals and habitats. The many tiers of conversation work include 1) the conservation of habitats, 2) fighting against poaching and illegal trade of threatened species, and 3) engagement and education of people and the communities. We provide education and support service to grassroots groups, communities and other NGO’s, both locally and abroad, to support them in their conservation efforts and projects.

Special Investigations

There are circumstances where the scale of abuse, neglect or endangerment is at a more systemic level. Response to such abuses requires extensive and often covert investigations.

It is our mission to conduct these investigations meticulously to bring about the best outcome of justice and change, for the betterment of wildlife and the environment.

Education and Training

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” Nelson Mandela

Education is the key to raising awareness of the value of our wildlife and our natural environments. Cee4Life is dedicated to provide education and training in wildlife care, animal ethics and conservation – from a grassroots community level to businesses and governments.

Community

We conduct education sessions in local communities, especially those in rural and remote regions of Australia and the Asia-Pacific.

Wildlife Carers

We provide education and training to wildlife carers and zookeepers in how to care for wildlife and endangered animals kept in captivity.

Anti-Poachers and Conservationists

We provide support and training to Anti-Poachers and Conservation teams. We teach best practice conservation methods on wildlife and environmental issues to the people who need them most.

Business Corporations

We work with businesses and provide advice in formulating their environmental management and sustainability plans. (See Achievements: APP)

Governments

We work with governmental departments to formulate policies in environmental management, habitat preservation, wildlife management and sustainability. (See Future Projects: Thailand)

International Relations and Wildlife Aid

“Many conservation projects would only succeed in the long term if they transcend national boundaries…. International cross-border cooperation is vital.” Sir David Attenborough

The fight for Conservation is multi-tiered. Rescuing animals at risk, for example, may involve the work of international diplomacy and intricate geopolitics.
We endeavour to work with different nations in putting wildlife and endangered animals as a priority. Cee4Life would also like to put forward contingency plans to assist in reducing human-animal conflicts and for long-term conservation goals. (See Future Projects)

The 193 Wombat Killings, The Possible Solution Victoria Australia

Wombat Victoria

Common/Bare-faced Wombat Victoria – Being treated for Mange

Killing Wombat’s Australia

On the 28th July 2019, “The Age” media published a Fairfax/Nine investigative report on the alleged crime and corruption linked between Melbourne’s (Victoria, Australia) Crown Casino and a Chinese businessman named Tom Zhou.  Amongst a host of terrible things, the investigation revealed that Mr Zhou is “an international criminal fugitive, the subject of an Interpol red notice, and that he is/was supposed to be arrested immediately if he crosses a country’s border.”  Mr Zhou also happens to own a property in Victoria where he runs a hunting business for high rollers to shoot and kill one of Australia’s most iconic native Australian marsupials, the common/bare-faced wombats.  This scenario is very similar to the same tactics used by other hunters around the world to sport kill animals such as the African wildlife, polar bears in Alaska, and now the wombats in Australia.  They find a loop hole.

Murrindindi is a scenic and usually quiet area, approximately one hundred kilometres north east of Melbourne.  However the once quiet township is no more as locals are disturbed, concerned and some frightened of the now familiar sounds of gunshots blasting day and night.

The New Daily translated some of Mr Zhou’s company website, (which is written in Mandarin) and includes the following statements:

When we come to Australia, we should experience life that we can’t experience in China,”

The first thing that should be felt in Australia is to be a wilderness hunter in the mountains of Australia”,

Even if you don’t have any shooting experience, it doesn’t matter”,

With professional guidance, you will be a great shooter!”, and

Hares, foxes, wombats, wild ducks, red deer, sambars (deer) … a variety of wild animals to spend a happy holiday with you.

The above statements from Mr Zhou’s hunting website is the essence of propaganda, luring, and enticement. Angering statements to say the least.

The Loop Hole

How has this sickening and totally non-Australian debacle happened?  Wombats are protected in every Australian state except for 193 parish areas in Victoria. The killing of the wombats has happened because the property location (Link to property Murrindindi Farm ) is in a parish area that does not protect wombats. In 1997, under section 7A of the Wildlife Act 1975 (Vic), wombats were declared ‘unprotected wildlife’ in 193 parishes across Victoria.  Is this the mysterious ” loop hole” that has allowed this disgraceful slaughter of the declining wombats?

The Possible Solution

There may be a legal light at the end of this barbaric tunnel.

From legal advise we received, regarding section 7A of the Wildlife Act 1975 (Vic), the declaration is subject to some qualifications, including that wombats may only be taken or destroyed by primary producers (i.e. ‘by a landowner or occupier who is engaged in rural production’). Therefore, hunting wombats for sport is not legal, even if it occurs in one of the 193 parishes.

Request to the Victorian Authorities

From the Wildlife Act 1975 (Vic), it is clear that the hunting activities on the Murrindindi property is breaching the law.  We request that the Victorian Government Authorities shut down Murrindindi farm hunting activities immediately  for breaching the Wildlife Act 1975 (Vic). We request that all firearms found on the Murrindindi property to be confiscated immediately, and finally that Mr Zhou is thoroughly investigated by whatever means it takes to find any other sordid illegal hunting venues in Victoria or Australia.

Last but certainly not least, on Cee4lifes behalf, we must thank a beautiful very very old sun-bear named Kardit, who came into our lives in Bandung Zoological Gardens and opened the hearts of all involved. Kardit deserves a gold medal!

Peace, friendship, united together, acceptance and understanding is the recipe for positive and successful progress.
