Your New Favourite Podcast Is Being Made Right Here At Melbourne Zoo

We’re absolutely wild for a podcast, and we know you are too. We’ve covered everything from true crime podcasts, those that’ll make your commute less crap, to the best for mindfulness—and now one of our favourite attractions in Melbourne has created their own with Zoos Victoria launching ‘Fauna’.

Available now, Fauna is a 20-30 minute podcast that features animal keepers, trainers, vets, and scientists from across Werribee Open Range Zoo, Melbourne Zoo, and Healesville Sanctuary.

Episodes cover a variety of topics like the first episode—“Animal Smarts”—which looks at how the animals can surprise you with just how intelligent they are, to a later episode titled “How do you evacuate a zoo” which takes a behind-the-scenes look at the events that took place on Black Saturday.

Episodes come out weekly and are available anywhere you get your Podcasts from.

Find out more about the podcast at zoo.org.au/fauna.
