Koala Joey Naming Competition
- Thursday 29th July 2021
- Koala, Competition
Our male koala joey needs a name and we need YOUR help to pick one!
Koala joey season has never looked cuter! We have welcomed another beautiful joey - this time it's a little boy.
Just like his mum, Iluka and dad, Banks, this little bub is very lively and loves to climb! He comes out first thing in the morning and climbs all over mum's head! He’s charming the keepers daily with acrobatic skills, which include eating upside down! He has his mother’s extremely large ears, which is larger than all of our other joeys.
Our baby boy is still missing a name though, so we need YOUR help to pick one! As he is a koala joey, it is tradition at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo that his name starts with the same letter as his dad's name. Dad's name is Banks so our joey needs a name starting with the letter 'B'.
THIS COMPETITION HAS NOW ENDED.
We are calling out for the public to help name our new Koala Joey and win the chance to win a family pass (2 adults, 2 children) PLUS a Koala Photo Encounter to WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo to meet our new joey.
Submit your suggestion below and in 25 words or less tell us what you are most looking forward to coming out of lockdown.
The competition is open from 7.00am AEST, Thursday 29 July until 11.59pm AEST, Thursday 5 August 2021. The winner and the winning name selected will be contacted by Monday 9 August 2021. Good luck!
