130 Years achieved for Adelaide Zoo

Entrance to Adelaide Zoo

Adelaide Zoo in South Australia is celebrating its 130th birthday today.

This is a wonderful achievement, showing a commitment on the part of South Australians to keep this wonderful establishment going. I should admit here that am a long time Life Member of the Zoo, and visit as much as I can during the year. I am a member because I firmly believe in what the zoo is doing in preserving endangered species. Not only do they have an active breeding programme for such species, there have been a number of recent examples of zoo animals being released into wild populations to boost numbers in the natural environment.

One thing that keeps me returning regularly to visit is the excellent collection of birds. I’ve frequently photographed many of the birds in their collection and featured them here on this site. You can read these articles and see the photos by trolling through my Archives (see link above) or going to the categories on the side bar and clicking on “Adelaide Zoo” orĀ  “zoos“.

Meanwhile, below are some bird photos I have taken there recently.

That’s me getting friendly with the zoo “pandas”
