Wow, what a month we have had! Our most exciting news is our success in breeding bilbys. We are part of the Zoo Aquarium Association “Breed and Release Program” for this endangered species. One of our two precious joeys will be released into a protected area in the wild and the other will be used in the captive breeding program. Other animal activity is the arrival of three Northern Quoll who are part of a breeding program to save this endangered species and six Black-headed Flying Foxes.
It has been a hive of activity with several work experience students spending time with us including Ellie and Nicole from England. These two girls are undertaking a National Diploma in Animal Management at the College of West Anglia, Wisbech and they decided that for their workplace component they would venture downunder for an experience of a lifetime.
We have also had the benefit of the retired head curator from Werribee Zoo here working with everyone for a very informative and hands-on learning experience.
We would like to thank Sheila Vernon and family from Brighton for their support by sponsoring one of the koala enclosures and for the on-going support of Reppers Rural Merchandise.
