How your ticket helps our conservation efforts
Once found throughout the Flinders Ranges, extending through north-west NSW and south-west Queensland in the Grey Ranges, Yellow-footed Rock-wallabies are now restricted to a range of approximately 1,000 square kilometres.
Intensive hunting in the past, habitat destruction due to grazing by domestic stock and feral herbivores such as goats and rabbits, predation by foxes and feral cats have resulted in a drop in population to be around 2,000 individuals in South Australia, while in New South Wales there are as few as 20 to 250 animals remaining.
By purchasing a ticket to our Yellow-footed Rock-wallaby Encounter at Adelaide Zoo, you are not only supporting the incredible species in our care, you’re also helping us raise awareness and valuable funds to safeguard their wild cousins. Part of the income generated from our Animal Experiences contributes to the work Zoos SA does in support of a wide number of conservation programs both within and beyond our gates.
