Gorge Wildlife Park as welcomed its newest addition this week, an American Alligator called Igon.

The 150kg reptilian beast was brought over on Tuesday from Hunter Valley Zoo in New South Wales, in exchange for some local water birds.

Zoo Keeper Brett McKecknie joins Jennie Lenman to talk about the trade and how the wildlife park in Cudlee Creek is surviving during the pandemic downturn.

The park in Cudlee Creek is still closed to the public as they await the lifting of restrictions from the State Government but you can keep up to date with their work on their facebook page.
