Story: Caversham Wildlife Park – The Perfect Place to Educate People on Wildlife
Airdate: 29th September 2019
Presenter: Quentin Long
Just a 30-minute drive from Perth lies Caversham Wildlife Park, a great park aiming to protect and conserve Australia’s wildlife.
- Not only does Caversham Wildlife Park offers visitors the chance to feed penguins, pet koalas and meet wombats, they aim to educate everyone on the wonders of our animals and how we can make a difference to our flora and fauna.
- Educating people on our local animals is the best way to ensure the future of our endangered animals and habitats across Australia.
- The keepers have extremely positive relationships with the animals, such as with Cassie and Judy the wombat; the park believes it is important for the visitors to see that the animals are happy and healthy.
- Park visitors are educated about the wombat – a lot of wombats are killed in road accidents, so slowing down on the road can help avoid this. Should you hit a wombat, make sure to check the pouch, as there can often be a baby inside.
- Despite its popularity, the quokka is in need of help, with Caversham lending a hand.
- Caversham receives no government funding, so their important work is funded solely by ticket sales – here at Caversham, you can help Australian animals by simply turning up and having a great time.
