Who is CHART
CHART is a Trust that has been created to facilitate the treatment and rehabilitation of native wildlife.
The primary goal of CHART is to construct a purpose built wildlife hospital capable of treating all native species but with a particular focus on the treatment of koalas and marine fauna. There is currently no such facility between Currumbin Wildlife Hospital on the Gold Coast and Taronga Zoo in Sydney.
In addition to this CHART also seeks to investigate and report matters of wildlife disease, educate students and the public on matters of conservation and the importance of biodiversity and liaise with local government and existing organizations dealing with native wildlife.
The Trust Deed defines the objectives and legal guidelines of CHART and is attached with this document (Appendix 1).
15th of April 2014 CHART was entered onto the Register of Environmental Organisations allowing donations to the fund to be eligible for a tax deduction under the Income Assessment Act 1997 (the Act).
In July 2014 the Trust was granted a Charitable Licence CFN/23375 which allows the organisation to raise funds in many capacities.
