Meet Meg-the star of Mornings

WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo's newest TV Star!

WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo keeper, Jess McCray and orphaned baby Southern Hairy-nosed Wombat, Meg, made a special guest appearance on Mornings today.

Meg stole the limelight with the camera focussed on her cute snuffling while Jess scratched her belly (which she loves!).

Meg was rescued from South Australia after her mother was hit by a car, and was taken to Northern Queensland to be raised by native animals care group - AACE (Australian Animal Care and Education). AACE carry out research with Southern Hairy-nosed Wombat reproduction, in the hope that one day we will know how to captively breed their endangered cousin the Northern Hairy-nosed wombat, to help save them from extinction.

Jess personally spent four months providing and caring for Meg. During that time, Jess and Meg really bonded and Meg still sees Jess as her mother figure.

WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo is very pleased to be associated with AACE and to be able to support them with on going donations from the public to allow them to continue their great work. This non-profit organisation does outstanding work in the care and research of wombats and we are so thankful to have Meg as part of our family at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo.
