Last Friday the Federal Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry; Warren Truss, launched the Quarantine Matters! TV commercials and in-flight video at Australia Zoo.
“The campaign includes three all-new ‘Crocodile Hunter’ Steve Irwin quarantine television commercials and a specially produced in-flight quarantine video featuring Steve, for screening on aircrafts flying into Australia.
The ads went to air nationally on television and in cinemas on Sunday May 15.
One 30-second and two 15-second ads warn travelers to ‘declare or beware’ – and Steve reminds viewers that quarantine extends beyond airports, with international mail and cargo containers also being screened or inspected by Quarantine.
