Mogo Wildlife Park has temporarily closed from Wednesday, March 25 as a precaution against COVID-19.
With its Western Sydney sister venue, Featherdale Sydney Wildlife Park, the Mogo park closed to the public at 5pm.
"During the closure period, Australian Wildlife Parks Managing Director, Chad Staples, aka Zookeeper Chad, will drive a social media community campaign, #AskAZookeeper to provide comfort to the community and show their commitment to animal welfare amidst the evolving COVID-19 situation," a spokeswoman said.
He will answer questions about animals from children unable to attend school.
The closure is a second blow to the 65-acre site after being shut for two months when bushfire hit the region on New Year's Eve.
Mr Staples and keepers saved 200 animals unaided.
Safety mandates to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus ban large gatherings.
"Staples and his team have been working tirelessly to ensure the daily routine of the animals in the care of Australian Wildlife Parks goes unchanged," the park said
Mr Staples said animal welfare was the park's first priority.
"Our park may be temporarily closed, but our animal care routine remains unchanged," he said.
"We have essential staff onsite to ensure our animals are looked after to the highest standard during these unprecedented times."
The #AskAZookeeper campaign hopes to engage children who are unable to attend school due to the virus.
Mr Staples encourages everyone to send questions about the park's animals via Facebook and Instagram.
"While our doors are shut, we want to ensure everyone at home can still experience the animals and this is an exciting way for everyone to get involved no matter where they are in the world," Mr Staples said.
Mr Staples on Wednesday afternoon posted a video the temporary closure of the Western Sydney park.
