Despite the bushfires, heavy rains and the coronavirus 2020 has been a great year in the ongoing development of Symbio Wildlife Park. Anyone visiting the summer would have seen three new exhibits and more are on the way. Managing Director Matt Radnidge said two species have been moved to larger exhibits as part of a plan to constantly improve Symbio for animals and visitors. Work was halted during the lockdown, but as soon as the zoo reopened in June, larger exhibits were built in new locations for Symbio’s two echidnas.

It was only through the strength of the people we have here that we were able to make this happen, “said Mr Radnidge. The new homes for the Echidna and Tasmanian Devil population of Symbio are thrice. larger than their previous dwellings. A building reminiscent of a Tassie log cabin is the new food preparation area for Tasmanian devils and was constructed using materials salvaged and recycled from a house demolition nearby to make room for more parking. ”We wanted to improve the area around the koala sanctuary where the Echidna and Tasmanian devils were found. By moving things around, we were able to give them all a new, bigger and better home, ”Mr. Radnidge said:“ The new addition to the Koala Sanctuary is now complete. More seating, accessible covered glass viewing areas, and better trails have been built into the design for visitors to all new exhibits.
