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.

Meet Jemima and Bill the Wood Ducklings. Sadly Mummy and Daddy Duck were hit by a car and killed just outside Healesville Sanctuary. A keeper found the two little ducklings and brought them to work. They've now been going home with Keeper Jessica for the past three weeks and have increased in size from a tiny 35g to 300g! They come to work with Keeper Jess every day and follow her everywhere, just like they would follow their real mum and dad. www.zoo.org.au/healesville
