MOGO Wildlife Park Community Day 2022

  • Sat Feb 26 2022
  • Family
  • From: $10.00

Mogo Wildlife Park will hold its third annual Mogo Wildlife Park Community Day on to mark two years since its official reopening in late February 2020.

Two years ago, when the Black Summer bushfires ravaged our community, a brave team of 14 keepers lead by the parks' managing director Chad Staples 'Zookeeper Chad' fought the bushfires on our site themselves for a number of weeks and kept all the animal residents safe despite calls for staff to evacuate. Their bravery and resilience has since become an example of hope locally and across the world, and the Mogo Wildlife Park Community Day is an opportunity for Mogo, and the wider Eurobodalla community to gather, reflect and look forward together.

For the Community Day only, Eurobodalla Shire and NSW South Coast residents as well as anyone else wanting to support the community are being offered a special once-only ticket price of $10 per person to come and reconnect with the amazing animal residents that call the wildlife park home. In addition to meeting meerkats, gorillas, lions and tigers and so much more, locals will be able to pre-purchase a discounted meal deal, as well as opportunities to hand feed wallabies and kangaroos and even ostriches!

To mark this significant event, Mogo Wildlife Park will also be screening a commemorative video produced by local filmmaker Isabel Darling from Torchlight Media, and guests are invited to record their reflects on the recovery of the wildlife park and the wider community on the day in an annual reflections book, to be kept and repeated on this day for years to come.
