The Zoo Music series will return to the zoo's band rotunda in January with five concerts for conservation. It's the eighth Zoo Music series and showcases the best Kiwi musical tal- ent. Opening the series is Dave Dobbyn on January 21 followed by the Auck- land Philharmonia Orchestra on February 4. Che Fu and The Kratez make a return to the zoo on February 12 and crowd favourites Sola Rosa heat up the stage on February 26. Closing the series on March 4 will be a double billing of popular acts The Phoenix Foundation and Liam Finn. Each concert will feature top sup- port acts and all funds raised will sup- port the zoo's conservation work, both on-site and out in the field. The money from the concerts for conservation will go a long way to helping us deliver on our commitment to giving wildlife a future,'' zoo conser- vation officer Peter Fraser says. Whether it's the work we do here at the zoo, having our staff assist with radio tracking kokako in the Waita- keres or giving both practical and financial support to help release rehabilitated orang-utans back into protected areas in the wild, Auckland Zoo is dedicated to the care and conser- vation of wildlife.'' A Zoo Music ticket also includes entry to the zoo on concert day, so music lovers can come early and re- connect with the animals at their leisure. Tickets are available from Ticketek online at www.ticketek.co.nz or by calling 0800 TICKET. Advance book- ing is recommended. Go to www.aucklandzoo.co.nz for full details. Summer heat can be a killer for dogs Hot dog: Jake much prefers to be on the outside rather than locked in the car during summer. Photo: SHANE WENZLICK By JESSIE COLQUHOUN Think of your furry friends while you're enjoying the sun this sum- mer. That's the warning from the SPCA which is urging pet owners to be careful when leaving dogs in cars. That can make them very sick very quickly, chief inspector Vicki Border says. The most serious case she's seen this year was at the start of Octo- ber. A dog was left in a car with the windows closed while its owner was at work. Luckily an SPCA worker found the dog -- which was unconscious -- and broke a car window to get it out. It was touch and go but the dog survived, Ms Border says. We got there just in the nick of time. It was very, very bad.'' People who leave their dogs in the car don't understand how it can harm their pets or they just don't think. Car interiors can get as hot as 70 degrees in 10 minutes in the middle of summer, she says. And the impact on a dog is serious. It can cause major organ failure, brain damage, unconscious- ness and seizures. Vets have to cool the dog slowly and give it cold intravenous fluids, steroids to counteract shock and oxygen to keep the lungs going, Ms Border says. We say to people: You get in the car and stay for 10, 20, 30 minutes and tell me you're not hot.' Be aware that the heat you're feeling, the animal is feeling as well -- but much worse.'' The safest thing is not to leave a dog in a car at all during summer. But if it can't be avoided, leave them with a bowl of water, park in the shade, roll all the windows down and stay for only a short period of time. And when it's hot people also need to think about their pets left at home. Garages or sheds can heat up quickly too so it's important to make sure pets are left in well-ventilated areas with lots of water.
