Wild Life Sydney Zoo has gone out with some sparkle to mark the end of Pride Month.

The festivities at Darling Harbour have been full of colour and furry friends. The zoo's keepers have been providing enrichment to the animals with a twist, including colourful building blocks, tree branches and soccer balls which help to keep the animals' minds and bodies active, and encourages natural behaviours.

Local Sydney drag icon Maxi Shield stopped by the zoo for the ultimate Instagram takeover, meeting animal friends like Ringo the wombat, as well as some of the adorable koalas and kangaroos.

Maxi was joined by keeper Scott (and Divisional Director Rob Smith) to talk all things Pride and why it's so important to acknowledge.
