I have just got back from Sydney. Over the next few days i will share with you the amazing places and people I visited involved in wildlife and environmental conservation.
Today i will tell you about my trip to Sydney Sea Life Aquarium.It was great. There I saw two Dugongs for the first time. They are just so beautiful, gorgeous and majestic and unfortunately are classified as vulnerable. Who doesn't like Dugongs. These are the only Dugongs in Australia in captivity! Their names are Pig and Wuru. Pig was separated from his mum when he was just a few days old and was found on Forrest Beach in Northern Queensland. After he was rehabilitated he was released back into the wild but he was found washed up on the beach again later, so they took him to Sydney Aquarium because of fears that he wouldn't survive in the wild. This is almost the same story with Wuru. Sydney Aquarium has one of the largest collections of Sharks and Rays in the world! Other endangered marine life i saw were Grey nurse shark, humphead wrasse, sicklefin lemon shark and many more. It was also good to see that Sydney Aquarium was educating people about shark conservation and the importance of sharks to the marine ecosystem.
See how Sea Life (the company the owns Sydney Aquarium and other Aquraiums) are helping marine life at, www.sealifetrust.org.au.
