Our Youth at the Zoo members were at Healesville Sanctuary recently, asking visitors to 'Wipe for Wildlife' and pledge to use recycled toilet paper. Youth at the Zoo is an education program targeted at 13-18 year old students who want to help fight extinction. The program provides members with a range of education and conservation activities they can participate in over the school holidays. For more information, visit http://www.zoo.org.au/yatz
Yami came to the Sanctuary after being found very nearly washed out to sea. She was very young and not ready to look after herself so Keepers Jess and Sarah took on the job of being Yami’s surrogate mums. Yami loves play time and enjoys new enrichments, anything from paperbark to tree ferns to pool noodles and toys.
