SUPPORTED BY NSW CLIMATE CHANGE FUN
At the Australian Reptile Park, we are committed to improving our environmental performance.
For the past four years, the Reptile Park has been using recycled alligator lagoon water to irrigate park grounds and most of its outside animal enclosures.
Thanks to the Office of Environment and Heritage, we are now harvesting rainwater from the roof of the Park's main building for use in Elvis the crocodile's pool and all internal display tanks. The rainwater is harvested to a 107KL underground tank.
The Park has also extended water pipes from the spring-fed alligator lagoon to the irrigation system for the remaining external enclosures within the park. Water efficient sensor taps and dual flush toilets have also been installed in all washrooms.
The project is estimated to save 2.8 million litres of water a year.
With great news, we have been able to save well above our target and have reached 2.9 million litres of water in the last year! This is thanks to the efforts of our staff and visitors who have helped us to be more conscious of our water usage.
Every day, there are simple things we can do around the home to save water and money, and help the environment.

ARP Water Savings at Project End
This was a fabulous day out, the interaction with the reptiles and animals was outstanding. Michaels live shows even though he's naughty, his knowledge is informative.
