Paradise Country welcomes wombat joey
Paradise Country, Village Roadshow Theme Park’s Australian homestead on the Gold Coast Queensland, has welcomed a nine-month old female wombat joey. Weighing around five kilograms the joey will join the other native Australian animals at Paradise Country in a specially designed habitat.
The wombat joey will be part of Paradise Country’s Save A Mate Program as an ambassador for her wild counterparts and help raise awareness and conservation efforts for Australia’s unique and wonderful wildlife. With less than 250 Northern hairy-nose wombats remaining today, they are one of Australia’s most endangered mammals.
Paradise Country Curator of Wildlife, Deane Jones said the joey is an exciting addition to the family and she is settling in to her new home well, after arriving from another zoological facility.
“She is a very sweet and affectionate wombat who loves playing, but like most youngsters she is still spending a lot of her time sleeping,” he said.
“She currently spends her days developing her life skills under the watchful eyes of our keepers and is feeding on a specially designed nutritional diet including pellets, grass, sweet potato and wombat milk formula.
“We are running a naming competition and are encouraging people to visit the Paradise Country Facebook page and vote for their favourite option from Mayzie, Dozy, Karri and Wattle.”
