Travel bug at zoo
PERTH Zoo's Project Passport will let visitors travel the globe without leaving WA these school holidays.
Explorers are being encouraged to collect a passport at the zoo and match the specially-created animal passport photos with the real animals.
“These school holidays you don't have to leave Western Australia to have an international adventure,” Perth Zoo spokeswoman Danielle Henry said.
“Project Passport will take you on a journey around the zoo through the steamy tropics of Asia, the wild African plains, deep into the heart of Papua New Guinea and the Amazon, the world's largest rainforest.
“And just like when you travel abroad, you'll get a sticker or stamp in your passport for every place you visit.”
You can get to know animals such as Bopha the sun bear and Kaluli the endangered Goodfellow's tree kangaroo.
There's also Raja the komodo dragon.
Perth Zoo is also celebrating the birth of its brand new pygmy marmoset babies.
“The pygmy marmoset is so small, it fits in a human palm,” Ms Henry said.
Project Passport runs from Saturday, September 23, to Sunday, October 8.
Community Newspaper Group is giving away 85 Perth Zoo family passes for the school holidays.
