One year on from re-opening after the black summer bushfire crisis, the Park welcomed locals back for a COVID-safe celebration amongst some of the world’s most unique and exotic species. Mogo Wildlife Park, home to the most diverse collection of exotic animals in Australia animals in the world, proudly hosted their second annual Community Day event for 2021. Prior to opening to the public, Mogo Wildlife Park welcomed local business owners and community leaders to the park for a Local Leaders Breakfast, with a special video message shared from NSW Premier, Gladys Berejiklian ahead of the event. The local community came out in force, spending the day amongst the world’s most iconic exotic wildlife, accompanied by an Aussie BBQ celebration and plenty of fun for the whole family. Zookeeper and Managing Director of Mogo Wildlife Park, Chad Staples said: “After experiencing two reopenings in 2020, we were thrilled to be able to connect with our local community to safely celebrate an important milestone for the Park.” “Today’s celebration is one way we’re able to show our appreciation for the continued support from our local community” he said. Australian Wildlife Parks, incorporating Mogo Wildlife Park and Featherdale Sydney Wildlife Park (located in Doonside, Western Sydney), took over ownership of Mogo Wildlife Park on 29 November 2019, and just over one month later, the Black Summer bushfire crisis that swept through Mogo township on 31 December headed directly towards the site. Park staff, lead by Managing Director Chad Staples (IG: @zookeeper_chad) bravely fought the fires and protected the property. All animals and staff survived the fires, and the park was only impacted by structural damage. Mogo Wildlife Park was opened on Boxing Day in 1989 and had just celebrated its 30th anniversary prior to the fires.
