San Diego Zoo’s new Australian Outback exhibit
Yeah! The koalas are back in force at the San Diego Zoo! Most of them have been missing for almost 18 months while their old 1930s exhibit was destroyed and a new, bigger, and more beautiful exhibit was built for the little cuties.
The new Australian Outback opened to fanfare and news cameras at 9:30 a.m. yesterday after 30 minutes of speeches and a really cool dance and rhythm presentation by two Aboriginal Australians who flew into San Diego especially for the grand opening. I got a short video of the two of them:
Many schools had made arrangement for classes to visit the Zoo yesterday, and you can guess where they all headed. I’ve never seen so many school busses and children in all my life.
Following are a few pictures of the new Australian Outback.
