Forrest was being raised by foster Mum Dianne for Zoos South Australia. Deeply concerned about the decline of Yellow Footed Rock Wallabies in the wild, Zoos SA had embarked on a breeding and native wildlife reintroduction programme in 1996. The project is one of the longest running in Australia and has been a great success to date.
So, well done Adelaide Zoo! Dianne and Forrest of course.
