Beware of crocodiles

29/08/2017
After bouncing up and down for 45mins, The Year 2 students of Coomera Rivers SS, finally reached their wild destination … Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary.  The cute koalas met us on the path and welcomed us in. We cruised our way along to the hospital where thousands of injured animals are treated each year.

The fearless Amber (2H) bravely took the stage during the Reptile Show, and was shown some affection by the black headed python as he slithered over her
shoulders.

The wedge-tail eagle, majestically, took flight over our heads and the jaw dropping wing-span amazed us. He was so elegant. Barry the ibis almost stole the show from the other birds, the cockatoos, eagles, parrots and owl.

We also enjoyed seeing the echidna, the crocs and of course, the adorable joeys in the kangaroo enclosure.

During the day, we learnt some very important messages. We learnt about our role in the eco system, the importance of taking care of our environment and safety around snakes… and considering Australia has the 10 most deadliest snakes in the world, we think this one is important!

We rated our excursion a 10 out of 10.​
