We are in the business of making memories, and when we received this artwork in the mail with a letter attached, we just had to share it with everyone.
This beautiful drawing is by a young seven year old named Mia. Mia attended a school trip to the Sanctuary and wanted to show her appreciation by creating this drawing. It was sent into us, with a hand written message, "keep tacing care of anamils". ;-)
Mia - thank you so very much for sharing this with our team! It brightened our day. ... See MoreSee Less

Instead of photographing our koalas here at the Sanctuary yesterday, we took a wander down to Coolangatta to check out some giant ones! With wonderful weather it was a lovely adventure along Marine Parade viewing some of the amazing sculptures from the Animals with Attitude Gold Coast Sculpture Trail. ... See MoreSee Less

The weekend rain brought a rainbow to CWS this morning! Guests were welcomed by a large number of lorikeets for our 8am feeding. Hearing their ruckus from our office building we had to pop down and grab some photos to show.

Last week, our staff visited the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Foundation to meet the dedicated team and volunteers looking after injured wildlife in our catchment. The visit involved a tour around the hospital, where we got to see first-hand the great work that is being done by staff and the 300-strong crew of volunteers at the hospital. Seqwater is working with the hospital to develop a gum plantation at Hinze Dam that will feed their hungry patients, including the very cute Edward (pictured). Find out more about the great work the hospital does, visit www.cwhf.org.au
