Perfect weather, a wonderful display of live locally-native animals, interesting displays and presentations and a crowd of cheerful people of all ages made our Wildlife Expo a great success. Visitors got to meet bettongs, potoroos, gliders, fruitbats, owls, cuckoos, flap-footed lizards, turtles, pythons and other creatures and learn about wildlife conservation, care of orphaned and injured animals, wildlife feeding, nesting boxes, wildlife-attracting plants, nature photography, wildlife art, tertiary courses involving wildlife, birding, reptiles shows and more.
The photo shows Martin Fingland of Gecko’s Wildlife, with one of his tame local species.
The Expo was run by the Scenic Rim branch of the WIldlife Preservation Society of Queensland.
