Kanyana Wildlife Park
Saturday afternoon I spent a great 3 hours with friends enjoying a picnic dinner at the Hainault Winery in the Bickley Valley east of Perth. It was a charity event to raise money for the Kanyana Wildlife Sanctuary. The event was $15 entry donation and it came with a fantastic view and some great live music. We also met a Burrowing Bettong (Boodie) and an echidna. I had never heard of a Burrowing Bettong before.
It was curled up in its cage and looked so sweet. Think of it as a burrowing mini kangaroo. Apparently they now only exist on islands off of the coast. They used to live on the mainland but nineteenth century settlers decided to kill as many of they could believing the were garden pests.
