In an Australian zoo first, Perth Zoo has joined with the world’s leading personalised video platform, Cameo, to give people the opportunity to receive video messages from the happiest animal in the world, the quokka.
Utilising the Cameo platform, Perth Zoo is enabling fans to receive personalised video messages from their animals – a concept utilised by many international zoos where ‘shout outs’ to people are filmed by zoo keepers with the animals to provide joy and wonder.
Perth Zoo’s Marketing and Communications Manager, Danielle Henry, said: “We are always looking at innovative ways to share our unique Australian wildlife with a broader audience.”
“Joining with Cameo allows us to create magical moments for people near and far, build personal connections and raise awareness about the animals in our care.”
“In such an unprecedented year, we wanted to take the ‘happiest animal in the world’ global and spread some cheer,” said Danielle. “We are sure our quokka group will be very popular.”
Cameo CEO, Steven Galanis, said: “At Cameo we make impossible fan connections possible. This is an Australian first and we are delighted to be working with the Perth Zoo to help deliver surprise and delight via quokka Cameos. What an incredible gift to give or receive.”
