Bringing wild Australia to Baptcare Karana

We exist in challenging times, and this ‘new normal’ requires we adapt to stay connected. There are also opportunities, and Baptcare communities are being intentional to find alternate ways to bring enjoyment into our homes. This is exemplified at Baptcare Karana who entered new territory by receiving an online stream from Australian Reptile Park (ARP), based in Sydney, NSW.

Residents and staff were able to get a look at Australia’s unique wildlife from the comfort and safety of their seats, including koalas, feeding of a saltwater crocodile and the milking of deadly snakes, all brought together by Tim Faulkner from ARP.

The afternoon also included classic clips of Australia’s animal guru himself, Steve Irwin and a selection of his baby animals.

Baptcare Karana is grateful to Tim and the rest of the team at Australian Reptile Park for a wonderful afternoon enjoyed by all.
