News and events


  • One chick observed and Paku seems a very attentive Mum and was constantly feeding chick snippets of exotic grass. However the same couldn’t be said of Quammen who, in an hour, didn’t seem to feed the chick once and appeared to prefer sentry duty.

We expect good sightings/interactions in 2-3 weeks and thank you for your patience.
