On Wednesday 28 August, Werribee Open Range Zoo marked Hearing Awareness Week with free entry, for deaf and hard of hearing students from around Victoria sponsored by the Victorian Deaf Education Institute
During the next four weeks Werribee Open Range Zoo’s baby rhino is expected to be on public display for timed viewings between 10.45am – 11.45am and 1.45pm – 2.45pm daily. If she needs some time to rest or the weather is poor, display times may change or be cancelled at short notice.
This month’s animal profile takes a look at one of our most recent additions to the Zoo family, our 6-week old baby Southern White Rhino calf. Affectionately nicknamed ‘Peppa’ by keepers, the baby calf is doing well and will receive her official name when she is a bit older.
