Wildlife World, Darling Harbour Sydney
The first thing I thought when I heard there was an Australian fauna park in the heart of Sydney was "How are they going to pull that off without hurting animals?".. The easy answer is they're not. Never have I seen so many listless, bored and stressed criters.
Add to that that most of Australias beloved wildlife is nocturnal, or by nature very shy and retiring, and what you get is enclosure after enclosure of tree parts because the animals have all managed to fuck off out of sight to avoid the stress.
Shameful. Letter to the editor time.
The fee was a flat out insult to boot - $30 per adult.
