April 4th, we spent the day at the Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary in Tasmania (Australia), feeding and petting many awesome creatures!

Our driver Sally picked us up at the cruise terminal and drove us to the Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary, located a few minutes North of Hobart. Bonorong is a Sanctuary for wildlife run by a passionate team of like-minded people. A social enterprise with a Tasmania-wide, 24/7 wildlife rescue service, that releases animals back into the wild when and if they recover.

We were fortunate to have the private nigh-feeding tour, which allowed us to meet, feed and pet some incredible animals, many of which went extinct long ago in other parts of Australia: Kangaroos, wombats, koalas, Tasmanian devils, sugar gliders, Eastern quolls, sulphur-crested cockatoos, green rosellas, “Randall” the echidna, tawny frogmouths, bettongs, grey geese…

It was an amazingly educational and sweet experience. Thank you SO much for all your conservation efforts, Bonorong!
