Presenter: Nikki Parkinson
Air Date: 15th November 2020
Spring is a great time to get outdoors and discover our native flora and fauna at Whiteman Park.
- Whiteman Park is located just 20 minutes from the Perth CBD and sits on 4,000 hectares of natural bushland.
- It is home to Caversham Wildlife Park, where you can get up-close and personal with Australia’s native fauna.
- The park boasts more than 2,000 animals, with everything from koalas, wombats and possums to Tasmanian devils and kangaroos.
- You can spot a number of nocturnal animals on one of the Nocturnal Woylie Walks through the Woodland Reserve.
- Explore the Reserve by torchlight, see the animals in their natural environment and learn about how Whiteman Park are helping the critically endangered woylie.
- The Reserve is home to many other species like echidnas, native birds and wallabies and the money raised from the walks goes towards protecting these species.
- Kids Nocturnal Woylie Walks will be held on Wednesday nights during the school holidays.
- These will be shorter walks with more time to get close to the animals and the kids get a special memento to take home with them.
