After a successful preview event before Christmas last year, MongoliAid is joining forces with the DFO in Cairns to present the world’s first space exhibition for Gobi bears this Easter school holidays! The exhibition will run from Saturday 6 April through to Monday 22 April. Attendees will experience a selection of historical newspapers, magazines and memorabilia that showcase the race to the Moon between the USA and USSR during the 1950s and 1960s.

The exhibition, much like the original space race itself, will culminate with exhibits that describe and celebrate the Moon landing in July 1969. The exhibition will be free to visit and attendees will have an opportunity to show their support for Gobi bear conservation efforts in Mongolia by purchasing a Gobi bear badge and other merchandise.

The first exhibition for Gobi bears in Australia was launched last night in Cairns

One small step for man, One giant leap for Gobi bearsĀ 

Last night MongoliAid hosted the world’s first space exhibition for Gobi bears! It was a great night with guests travelling through time to gaze upon rare artifacts that documented the space race from the end of World War 2 to the successful Apollo 11 lunar mission. The sounds of the 60s floated across the room at Cominos House whilst gingerbread Gobi bears, knitted Gobi bears and books about rare Gobi mammals were available for purchase. We raised nearly $1000 in what was an embryonic experimental exhibition experience! Thank you to all MongoliAid supporters and friends who made the night possible. Your sweat and good vibes were and are greatly appreciated.

A Coming Attraction that will be out of this world!

The last Garage Sale 4 Gobi Bears – August 2018

August 11th, 2018

Today we raised nearly $500 towards the cost of the next Gobi bear food drops in September and October. The garage sale marked the end of an era as we will try new and more exciting ways to raise $ for Gobi bear conservation measures moving forward. Upon hearing the news many of our regular patrons lamented the loss of our regular garage sales – we prided ourselves on providing bargains with humour. Thanks to Paula and John for helping out on this auspicious day.

Walking with Gobi Bears 2018

July 7th, 2018

Today we successfully hiked from Kamerunga (in Cairns) to Wright’s Lookout at Kuranda – and back again! – a round trip of 15km through the Barron Gorge National Park, to raise funds and awareness about our favourite rarest bears in the world … the mazaalai (Gobi bears). A BIG thank you all the hikers and ghost hikers who helped us to keep the supplemental Gobi bear feeding program on track for it’s next installment in August. Here are some photos.
