Kanyana fundraiser

The Advocate (Perth) - - FRONT PAGE -

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.”
