ENJOY the nocturnal beauty of cheeky possums, touch the prickly quills of beautiful echidnas and get closer to carpet pythons when Kanyana holds a fundraising day in Forrestfield on January 18.
The wildlife rehabilitation centre will host two sessions for the community to visit and see animals with their carers.
Interactive activities will be offered for children and adults at 9.30 and 10.30am.
Kalamunda Mayor John Giardina said the volunteers at Kanyana continued did a wonderful job each year caring for native animals injured and needing rehabilitation.
“We are so lucky to have this worldclass facility fully staffed by people who give their time, love and attention to the creatures and add to the existing bio-diversity of the planet and our special place in it, here in Western Australia,” he said.
“It is so important that we protect these wonderful animals and reptiles and birds and prevent them from becoming threatened species here in their native habitat.”
