Tenielle Matheson, already a star at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, is no stranger to the stage after her hilarious interview of Mayor Tom Tate at the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Foundation Gala Dinner two years ago, moving onto The Footy Show last year but now she has outshone many to represent the Gold Coast and the Sanctuary at Glasgow’s Commonwealth Games Closing Ceremony.
Tenielle is one our senior wildlife presenters here at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary and we wish her all the best in this exciting opportunity. That’s two golden girls at the Games for Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary …with Olympic Champion Sally Pearson an ambassador for the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Foundation, we are confident of some medals!

Echidnas have not been bred readily in captivity in the past. However over the last five years Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary has bred eight puggles (baby echidnas)! The breeding season is from mid June and will continue right through to the end of September with puggles arriving as late as early November. This season we have introduced six pairs of echidnas with a great focus on one very special spikey family member. “Piggie”, was our first puggle to be bred at the Sanctuary four years ago and we are proud that this is her first breeding season. If Piggie successfully produces a puggle this season, the Sanctuary will be one of only two locations to have a captive-bred echidna reproducing. During the breeding season our echidnas are monitored by cameras 24hrs daily and feed a high protein diet with termites given as an extra treat. Come and visit the Sanctuary and have your photo taken as well as a snuggle with these amazing Australian icons!
