Paw-fectly adorable Valentine’s for Adelaide Zoo’s crew

Love was in the air today at Adelaide Zoo as the species received heart-shaped gifts from their keepers.

Zoos SA’s volunteer group BEEZA (Behavioural Environmental Enrichment for Zoo Animals) put their heart and soul into a wonderful selection of enrichment.

Lions Mumambi and Amani managed to get in a smoochy snuggle, Sumatran Tiger Delilah was enjoying her enrichment when male tiger Kembali caught her eye, Radiated Tortoises nibbled through bouquets of Hibiscus flowers and Giant Panda Wang Wang received a heart-shaped box stuffed with a blanket with sweet potato and panda cake.

While Valentine’s Day is but once a year – love, affection and a focus on the wellbeing of our animals is constant throughout the year. Over the years, Zoos SA has been involved in a wide range of conservation programs. Our efforts have spanned the globe and include breeding, habitat restoration, biological surveys, contributing to insurance populations, studies in reproductive biology, conservation education, corporate and community fundraising, wildlife disease management, translocation and community development to foster alternative livelihoods.

Show your love for conservation, our planet and our furry and feathered friends by visiting soon. For more information or to book your tickets, please visit Please note Zoos SA sites are mandated for fully vaccinated visitors.
