During these Covid-19 ISO times, Moonlit Sanctuary has issued the challenge to find wildlife within the confines of home.

The Pearcedale wildlife park has launched a photography competition for kids to snap the wildlife – whether it be a pigeon, snail, ant, lizard or other critter – in their backyard, home or balcony.

“Remember to stay safe,” the sanctuary sagely advises.

“Even very small wildlife can bite or sting and be dangerous so ask an adult before getting close.”

Entrants can upload their photos to the Moonlit Sanctuary website up until Friday 21 April, 5pm.

Four winners will receive $100 gift vouchers. They will be announced on Monday 24 April.

The wildlife park is temporarily closed as part of the coronavirus lockdown.
