And you can come too too too – Im going to the zoo zoo zoo.l
Melbourne Zoo is funded by the Govermment – it is set in the Royal Park Gardens near the city centre and although small is great for children and adults alike. Personally I felt that some of the enclosures were a little small but at the end of the day the breeding programmes and genuine concern for the animals by staff and their passion for conservation of endangered species outweighed the negatives.
We were adopted by a zoo volunteer on the way in who’s initial offer to show us the way to the giraffes turned into a 1.5 hour guide of some of the walks, including stops for the toilet. My initial reaction was to shrug him off as I was expecting a request for money but then I remembered I was in Australia no Asia and no fee was required just the ability to listen to a man wanting to share his knowledge and love for the animals.
Your disturbing my sleep!
How many do you think are left in the wild now?
