EnergyAustralia will be hosting an interactive activity trail promoting energy efficiency at Taronga Zoo these October school holidays.
This morning a Barking Owl chick arrived to be raised by zookeeper Erin and then trained for the QBE Free Flight Bird Show.
Luk Chai has been busy playing with the bunch of small tyres again. We hung the tyres out in the paddock on a tree branch and he does a little mock charge at them. He likes to do a bit of a run up and bump them with his head.

Spring is certainly here at the Backyard to Bush where Amy the goat gave birth to three kids late last month and her friend Eve had twins yesterday!
