Title: Koalas and their Babies: Caversham Wildlife Park
Broadcast: 1st April 2018
Presenter: Debbie Thorne-Morley
Caversham Wildlife park just 30 minutes drive to the north of Perth’s CBD is both a destination and a great way to experience the best of Western Australia in less than a day. Today, Debbie takes us around!
- Debbie grew up at Caversham Wildlife Park as her parents did what every little kid wishes their parents would do. They bought a zoo!
- Although Koalas are not native to WA, Caversham is part of a nationwide conservation effort because Koala numbers are dropping. The only way that is going to change is through educating the people responsible for the destruction of their habitat.
- Research has found that people are far more protective of things when they build a relationship up with them. Caversham want guests to find out more about Koalas and make a connection.
- All the keepers have their favourite Koalas. Currently there are quite a few babies around and they are so cute!
