Zoo crew wel­come some spe­cial vis­i­tors

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Front Page -

VIS­IT­ING US sailors knew they were on Aus­tralian soil last week when they came face to face with a true Aus­tralian icon – a koala.

The sailors from the vis­it­ing USS Carl Vin­son were on hand last week vol­un­teer­ing at Perth Zoo.

The ea­ger vis­i­tors helped the zoo out with gar­den-mulching, tidy­ing up ser­vice ar­eas, clean­ing out a sump, mov­ing logs and ren­o­vat­ing an en­clo­sure for meerkats.
