Australia Zoo is passionate about the care and protection of wild animals and habitat conservation. Founded by Steve Irwin and Terri Irwin, the zoo and its many conservation projects are dedicated to creating a positive and safe environment for wildlife. The zoo is now fun by Terri, Bindi and Robert Irwin.
Elissa is an ambassador to the zoo, as well as the Irwin's Wildlife Warriors program as a Global Guardian. Elissa's ambassador work adds gravitas to Wildlife Warriors conservation projects and the vital work of the zoo's internationally recognised Wildlife Hospital.
Earth Hour is a worldwide movement organised by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). The event, which asks participants to switch off their non-essential lights for one full hour, is held annually from 8:30 - 9:30pm. Today, Earth Hour engages a massive mainstream community on a broad range of environmental issues.
Elissa is ambassador to Earth Hour Australia, encouraging her community to "go dark" for the event every year.

Founded by Patagonia, 1% for the Planet is an awareness campaign that encourages companies to donate small portions of their profits into ocean conservation. One percent connects businesses, consumers and non profits to empower all of us to drive big and positive change.
