Winter:Cedar Meadows

Cedar Meadows

Northern Ontario, Ca

The last time I went on Cedar Meadows Resort and Spa‘s northern wildlife tour was during the middle of winter, when Canada’s harsh temperatures were at their worst, especially in northern Ontario.

Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary

Currumbin Wildlife SanctuaryCurrumbin Wildlife SanctuaryCurrumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is located in Currumbin on the Gold Coast, Queensland.

I wanted to visit an animal preserve that helps to protect the Australian environment and the animals that live within it. It’s important for me to support an ethical company with conscious practices, which also educates visitors about Australian native animals and their protection in the wild. With the largest collection of Australian native animals, Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is the perfect place for me to get a glimpse of what Australia has to offer. Continue reading
