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.
