 Recycle your old mobile phones

One of the biggest threats to gorillas is the mining of coltan in gorilla habitat. Coltan is used in many mobile phones.  The Werribee zoo can recycle your old mobile phone.

Scots’ Church will be supporting Werribee Zoo with this initiative.  We will place a box in the Robert White Hall where you can put your old mobile phones to be recycled – just look for the Gorilla.
