Animal Sponsorships

Sponsoring a Lone Pine animal is the perfect way to support not only our wildlife but also their wild counterparts.

Your sponsorship will help support all animals within the Lone Pine family, including your chosen individual. Sponsorships are a one-off payment of just $20AUD.

Your support will go towards:

  • Providing 24/7 veterinary care
  • Maintaining healthy, varied diets and enrichment activities
  • Maintaining our three eucalyptus plantations
  • Continuing exhibit and environment maintenance and improvements
  • Contributing to research and conservation efforts

What is included:

  • Digital sponsorship certificate
  • Species information sheet, so you can learn all about them

Our wildlife keepers will be more than happy to point out your sponsored animal in their exhibit, so you can say hello.

Upon payment of your sponsorship, you will receive an email confirmation receipt. Our team will then be in touch shortly via email with your sponsorship certificate.

Meet Poppy, aka “Miss Independent”. Born on the 29th of June 2019, she is a strong-willed, little go-getter of a koala who can never get enough attention from her care team.

Poppy has been melting hearts from the moment she left her mums pouch with her independent and feisty nature. She’s a little koala with a big personality.

Both born on the 6th of August, 2019 (although not siblings!), Jindy and Stirling are Lone Pine’s two youngest dingoes.

Stirling is a social butterfly and just wants to be everyone’s best mate. He loves to stand beside his keepers while they clean his exhibit, and when out on walks, always makes a beeline for staff and guests to say hello!

Jindy is our gorgeous girl, easily identified by the white tip on the end of her tail and the fact that it never stops wagging! Jindy is a very sweet girl and a little goofy. She loves to investigate everything both inside her exhibit and out. She’s always the first to greet her keepers, letting out a deep little grumbling noise to express her excitement.

Jindy and Stirling live alongside Tanami, our older female dingo.

Meet Hendrix, our very handsome male perentie, who arrived at Lone Pine in March 2019. Hendrix is extremely intelligent and is the process of learning to walk on a harness for enriching adventures.

Hendrix enjoys nothing more than basking in the sunshine and getting some chest scratches from his keepers.

Aroona is one of our male platypus, born on the 1st of October 2012. Aroona is a speedy little lad, both in the water and on land. He loves chasing crayfish in his tank, and always travels through his burrow network in record speed, before snuggling up in his den for a nap.

You can easily identify Aroona by his smooth, perfectly brown bill, as opposed to Barak’s which has pink pigmentation.

Meet Mr. Miyagi, the red kangaroo with a black belt in chilling. When Mr. M isn’t grazing for grass with his other kangaroo buddies, he can often be seen sprawled out on his back soaking in the sun.

Meet Spirit, the wedge-tailed eagle. Spirit was originally brought into care from the wild after being struck by a car. His injuries meant that he couldn’t be released, but he still gets to fly every day as one of the stars of our Free Flight Raptor Show.

Spirit is a serious boy, but has a definite soft side and likes the occasional head scratch from his keepers. Spirit arrived at Lone Pine in November 2004.

There is only one word to sum up Bella: sweet.

Born January 2013, Bella is a gentle and curious soul who loves to follow around her keepers while they are cleaning. She is harness trained and enjoys going out on regular walks with her keepers to explore, sometimes even taking them for a jog!

Whether out and about, or taking a nap, Bella is sure to melt your heart.
