Zookeepers have saved the world famous Mogo Zoo on the state’s south coast after it was ringed by fire today.

A sanctuary to some animals that no longer exist in the wild and others that are on the endangered list, Mogo Zoo is home to Australia’s largest collection of primates as well as giraffes, zebras, cheetahs and its famous snow leopards.

Featherdale director of life sciences Chad Staples said no animals had been hurt because of the heroic work by staff who, for more than three hours, fought the flames and spot fires which burned right into the zoo.

“We had staff in every corner making sure everyone and every animal was safe,” Mr Staples told The Daily Telegraph.

“It was hell. You can still see the flames just across from us.”
