Morwell residents seeking respite from the smoky conditions caused by the Hazelwood open-cut fire are being offered free entry into Victoria's Zoos, including Melbourne Zoo, Werribee Open Range Zoo and Healesville Sanctuary.
Springtime is a very busy time when Healesville Sanctuary receives many orphaned wildlife babies. Our vet team at the Australian Wildlife Health Centre work very closely with keepers and carers to look after these little ones.
Don't miss the exclusive Nine News special as we go behind the scenes and meet the vets saving species from extinction at Healesville Sanctuary, Melbourne Zoo and Werribee Open Range Zoo this Friday 20 December at 7.30pm for Victorian viewers.
Under the gorgeous setting sun, Aunty Joy Wandin-Murphy, AO, filmed a Welcome to Country ceremony at Healesville Sanctuary for Tourism Victoria; it will be seen by all visitors coming through Melbourne Airport.
