Three bun­dles of fluff are the very spe­cial new ar­rivals at the Wildlife Habi­tat in Port Dou­glas. Three black-necked stork eggs hatched over the week­end, and Habi­tat staff are over the moon about it. “We still re­main the only zoo or wildlife park in the world to have once again suc­cess­fully bred the black-necked stork!” said Narelle Spencer of the Wildlife Habi­tat. “We are so ex­cited and also look­ing at the big task ahead of us to en­sure all three sur­vive. James and Jab­bie are both shar­ing the parental du­ties and James’ pro­tec­tive fa­therly in­stincts are very in­ter­est­ing to ob­serve.”
