Bill Bailey meets staff and Herbert at Paradise Park
Comedian Bill Bailey, a great environmentalist and parrot lover, popped in to see staff and Herbert the Palm Cockatoo!
It was a pleasure to welcome Bill Bailey to the park recently.
Bill has a great passion for wildlife and is especially fond of Indonesian fauna.
He was delighted to see so many Mitchell’s Lorikeet’s here, the result of one of our conservation breeding programmes. Like us, he too hopes that one day some of these birds can be returned to Bali where they are currently extinct in the wild.
