Pumika Finally Arrived!
At last Sumari has the company of his half-brother Pumika who arrived on December 19. The two giraffe were happily reunited after a six month delay due to Pumika’s reluctance to cooperate with the training program. The keepers at Monarto Zoo, SA were finally able to convince him it was all okay so they were able to transport him just in time for Christmas.
As a new year begins we once again reflect on the last twelve months and the achievements we have made. The increased variety of animals on display in new or revamped enclosures are all contributing to our growing reputation of being Victoria’s largest regional zoo with now over 160 different species around the 2km walking track and well worth a visit. With plans to keep moving forward – watch this space.
We would like to thank the local business houses for their continued support this past year by way of their sponsorships and in particular this month to Four Clowns Ice Creams so make sure you try out one of their ice-creams after you visit the zoo.
