Our miniature pigs' first birthday party had an excellent turn out yesterday morning. ๐Ÿท Thank you to everyone who joined us in wishing them a happy birthday.

'Peppa', 'Pumba', and 'Wilbur' had an oink-tastic time and were spoilt by their keeper, Amy, who made them each a peanut butter and banana cake. ๐Ÿ˜‹ Even our ex-battery hens joined in the fun. ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ”

Brahminy kites are opportunistic scavengers who scour coastlines in search of food, and items to line their nests with. Unfortunately, their treasure-hunting often brings them in to contact with rubbish. โ˜น๏ธ

'Zephyr' was brought into care with fishing line wrapped around his foot which resulted in affecting his gripping-ability. As kites rely on their powerful feet to catch their prey, this made Zephyr unsuitable for release back into the wild. Lone Pine now provides all of the fish he needs, and we've even made him a special "fake fish" to practice, and strengthen, his gripping skills. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’™

People from around the world can now experience a 360-degree virtual tour of Lone Pine from the comfort of their own home. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ In January 2018, the Google Street View team walked every inch of Lone Pine's 20-hectare property, capturing the natural beauty of the sanctuary and its characters within.

To visit us on Google Street View, click here: https://bit.ly/2IOZU9b

Today was a very exciting time at the sanctuary, as we officially welcomed our new common wombat, 'Bruce Almighty' to the Lone Pine family.

Known day-to-day as โ€˜Bruceโ€™, this spritely young wombat made the move from South Australia to sunny Brisbane, and today was introduced to his exhibit. He wasted no time exploring his new home, digging holes, and of course, marking his territory.

Bruce was orphaned at a young age and was hand-raised by a wildlife carer. He will now call Lone Pine his โ€˜forever homeโ€™.

Everyone please help us in giving Bruce the big, warm welcome he deserves.
