It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved dingo, 'Simpson'. The loss of Simpson came very unexpectedly, with his health rapidly deteriorating over the past couple of days. He wasn't quite himself over the past couple of weeks so extensive health checks and close monitoring were undertaken by the veterinary team. In recent ultrasound results, it was discovered that he had a large, inoperable tumour. With Simpson's health and comfort at heart, our team made the heartbreaking decision to put him to sleep. 
Our keepers will be closely monitoring the well-being of Simpson's sister, 'Tanami', over the coming days, as well as increasing keeper interaction and enrichment activity. 
Our thoughts are with all of those who knew and loved Simpson, especially his dedicated keepers who shared their days with him for the last eight years. 
We thank you for your support during this sad time. ❤️ #lonepinekoala #wildlife #brisbaneanyday #thisisqueensland #seeaustralia #visitbrisbane #mustdobrisbane #aussienewstoday #dingo

Happy Anniversary to our peregrine falcon, 'Maverick', who has now been home to Lone Pine for seven years. 🥰 
Peregrine falcons are the fastest animal on the planet, reaching up to an impressive 320km/hr when in pursuit of prey. 😮 They can be found on every continent except Antarctica, and have even adapted to living in many cities making use of tall buildings with suitable ledges for nesting.

Hairy-nosed wombats are distinguished from common wombats by their soft grey-brown fur and their large square noses. ☺️ They also have longer ears. The southern hairy-nosed wombat is the smallest of all three wombat species. 
Have you met 'Kelvin', our handsome Southern hairy-nosed wombat? 😍

Today, March 3rd, is World Wildlife Day. This year’s theme is “Life Below Water: for people and planet”. 🌏

One of the challenges facing our oceans is plastic waste. Not only have plastics proven hazardous for many aquatic animals, wildlife in coastal regions are also being impacted. 
Our Brahminy Kite, Zephyr, had a first-hand run-in with beach plastic. To read about Zephyr's story, and to find out how you can help, visit: https://koala.net/getting-a-grip-on-plastic-pollution.

Koalas have thick, woolly fur. 🐨 Their fur protects them from both hot and cold temperatures, and even acts like a raincoat during wet weather. 😮

Just like humans, dingoes have wrists that can rotate. This means they can use their paws like hands which helps them to be very successful hunters. How handy is that? 😄
