Hello Holly the Wallaby!

Our competition to find the name of a baby Parma wallaby born in their award-winning Wilderness Walkthough was a great success! We had hundreds of name suggestions for the baby girl wallaby from social media followers, with the firm favourite being Holly Wallaby, first suggested by Claire Pullham on Facebook. The name being similar to that of the popular English television presenter and model, Holly Willoughby.

Claire not only gets the honour of naming the baby wallaby, but also wins a family day ticket to the wildlife centre, and a wallaby teddy!

The Parma wallabies are joined by an array of wonderful wildlife in the enclosure that visitors can walk through, including Azari’s agouti, Patagonian mara, as well as native species such as wild birds, squirrels, bees, butterflies and dragonflies.
