25 years of animal tales. In May 1975 at the age of 30, Darill Clements answered an advertisement in the Sydney Morning Herald for a Public Relations Assistant at taronga Zoo. After confessing in the interview that she had no interest in animals whatsoever she had never owned a pet in her life Darill was more than surprised when she was offered the job. In Postcards from the Zoo, Darill now a self-confessed animal nutter reflects on a quarter of a century of behind-the-scenes life at taronga Zoo in Sydney and Western Plains Zoo in Dubbo. Written from Darill s very personal perspective, we are introduced to Mary the husband-beating gibbon, the Giant Panda who enjoyed horror movies, a condor called Diablo who changed his name to Bruce, the Koalas who packed their pouches for Japan, Lulu the chimp who loves fireworks and many more amazing creatures. Postcards from the Zoois an evocative and inspiring chronicle and is essential reading for all animal-lovers.
