KOALA CREEK

A BRAND NEW HABITAT AS PART OF AN INTERNATIONAL BREEDING & AWARENESS PROGRAMME

After a substantial amount of design work and a lengthy construction phase, it’s great to see the arrival of the Koalas at our newly completed exhibit at Longleat. This project consists of two separate Koala enclosures, both with indoor and outdoor areas. There is also a large enclosure for Hairy Nosed Wombats with a substantial outdoor area and an indoor burrow area.

In addition to the exhibits there are also new back of house areas including a chilled food store and quarantine / veterinary room.

The five Southern Koalas and two Wombats arrived in October 2018 from Cleland Wildlife Park near Adelaide and instantly made themselves at home. The feature opened to the public in March, giving the animals plenty of time to settle into their new environment.

This was a turn-key project by Nautilus and one we are very proud of. We feel privileged to have played a small part in this international breeding and awareness programme.
