MEET Lola, Featherdale Wildlife Park’s new­est baby wom­bat.

The seven-month-old or­phan was found safe af­ter a road ac­ci­dent killed her mother four weeks ago and was taken to the Doon­side sanc­tu­ary.

She’s quickly be­come a favourite among park staff. “She’s a dar­ling,” gushed Chad Sta­ples, direc­tor of life sci­ences at Featherdale.

“She’s stay­ing here for­ever, she’s the most beau­ti­ful wom­bat in the world.”

Lola has joined a pa­rade of celebri­ties, politi­cians, local iden­ti­ties as am­bas­sadors for this year’s #SnapSyd­ney com­mu­nity event, which aims to bring our city to­gether in a pho­to­graphic cel­e­bra­tion of ev­ery­thing that makes Syd­ney spe­cial.

For 24 hours on Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 16, Syd­neysiders are in­vited to post pho­to­graphs to so­cial me­dia to build a liv­ing gallery of a day in the life of our won­der­ful town with the hash­tag #SnapSyd­ney.

The best pic­tures of the day will be pub­lished on our dig­i­tal plat­forms and in NewsLo­cal pa­pers.

And we are giv­ing you plenty of chances to prac­tise your skills ahead of #SnapSyd­ney.

Last week we asked read­ers to post snaps of the char­ac­ters and lar­rikins that make their part of Syd­ney unique, with tips from the Canon Col­lec­tive ex­perts on how to take the per­fect photo on your cam­era.

Now we want you to show us what you love most.

Post pic­tures that show us your pas­sions with the hash­tag #SnapSyd­ney.

Post your snaps on the day to In­sta­gram @SnapSyd­ney, Twit­ter #SnapSyd­ney or Face­book (don’t for­get to tag your local pa­per and keep your pro­file public so we can see your fan­tas­tic pic­tures).

So go on: Snap, hash­tag, and share the love.
