Most of you would be familiar with that classic film, The Lion King. Simba the lion cub loses his dad, but eventually defeats his mean uncle and a “slow-witted” gang of hyaenas to become king. We know it’s a great story (with an amazing soundtrack), but there is one problem we have with it…hyaenas are completely misrepresented.
It’s National Volunteer Week and to celebrate we thought we’d tell you a bit more about a new addition to the Perth Zoo Docent (volunteer) Association – our new Animal Care program*, find out more from team leader, Katrina.
Visitors to Perth Zoo recently got to enjoy a Net Fix marathon. No, not a Netflix movie marathon, but an extraordinary logistical operation to fix the netting that forms the roof of our beautiful Wetlands Aviary.
