Part Time Rangers is an environmentally conscious booze brand donating portions of proceeds from their drink sales toward animal conservation initiatives across the globe. Each drink is centred around an animal, including the Pink Rhino, a gin, raspberry, and sparkling water RTD dedicated to the Rhinos Without Borders cause. There’s also Yellow Elephant and Black Elephant, each donating portions of proceeds to Big Life Foundation. The new flavour, Peach Penguin is a delicious and low-sugar premix drink made of vodka, juicy peach & sparkling water. To celebrate the launch, Part Time Rangers is offering up a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to help the penguins.

Introducing the Part Time Ranger Scholarship. In conjunction with the Conservation Council of WA (CCWA), the scholarship allows one person to join scientists in Western Australia to help protect the Little Penguin for future generations. This immersive conservation experience includes travel to Penguin Island, WA, and the unique opportunity to be mentored by leading conservation biologist Dr Erin Clitheroe, PhD, as you test new, lower-temperature nest boxes to cool down penguins on hot days.

“Australia’s Little Penguin is a national treasure, but populations are in decline, and this bird could soon face extinction if we don’t act and provide solutions. The Part Time Ranger Scholarship is an opportunity to see the science first hand while helping support and promote wider conservation efforts to save this beautiful Aussie bird,” said Clitheroe.

The lucky winner will also receive $2,000 prize money, plus $1,500 spending money for food and transport (excluding return flights to Perth) and a case of Part Time Ranger’s Peach Penguin. Return flights to Perth, WA, are part of the package too.

If you’re ready to spend three days hanging out with penguins for a good cause, you can apply for the Part Time Ranger Scholarship here. The deadline is Monday, February 20, 2023.

While you wait to hear back, you can find Part Time Rangers Peach Penguin in national and independent retailers across the country, including Dan Murphy’s.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
