Sponsorship

Moonah Taste of the World The Moonah Taste of the World Festival is a celebration through food of the rich cultural diversity of Glenorchy City and southern Tasmania.  Staged in the vibrant suburb of Moonah, a busy hub of diverse eateries and food suppliers, the event will feature 20 food stall holders presenting a mouth-watering selection of dishes and treats from around the globe at very reasonable prices.

Partnership

Nyrstar has partnered with Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary to create the first Seabird Rehabilitation facility in Tasmania.  The enclosure features specialised infrastructure including a pool, allowing the Sanctuary to care for sick and injured seabirds.  Nyrstar has a very strong focus on proactive environmental solutions, which have seen significant improvements to protecting the Derwent Estuary and the sealife it houses.  Nyrstar is proud to support Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary in its endeavors to protect Tasmania’s precious seabirds.

 

Nyrstar has teamed with North Melbourne Football Club to deliver an Australian first program Nyrstar Hop To It Tasmania focussed on inspiring young Tasmanians to get set for careers underpinned by healthy and active lifestyles in a supportive environment.  Through Neighbourhood houses the Nyrstar Hop To It Tasmania program will provide information, equipment and inspiring role models in the North Melbourne players to deliver key messages around the importance of goal setting and health and well-being.  Nyrstar will personally conduct 10 of the sessions on site with direct local schools, providing opportunity for employees to be involved in sharing their stories and allowing students to experience and learn from a broad range of careers.
