Out of the dumpster and into a display: A survival story with a twist
A Sydney garbage worker has saved the life of a crayfish destined for the dumpster by bringing it to the experts at Sydney Aquarium.
The West Australian smooth marron, dubbed ‘Pinchy’, was found in a Styrofoam box behind a seafood restaurant in Pyrmont.
Sea Life Sydney Aquarium displays supervisor Daniel Sokolnikoff told Jim Wilson it’s a “very unusual” backstory for one of their rescues.
Pinchy has undergone a two-week quarantine and will be on display to visitors when the aquarium reopens post-lockdown.
“Without the correct care, Pinchy would not be with us today.”
