Australia Zoo has temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.

The successful wildlife photographer shared a series of photos and videos from inside the zoo.

‘Self isolation Australia Zoo style. Step 1. Graze with a tortoise,’ the first post was captioned, alongside a picture of a giant tortoise. 

He then cuddled his dogs, skateboarded to the African section of the zoo and cuddled a rhino in steps two to five. 

For step six, he played the ukulele while jumping on a trampoline, sharing a video of himself doing backflips while continuing to play the instrument.

Lastly, Robert watched the sunset and shared a message with his followers: ‘Stay safe everyone, stay inside when you can, wash your hands and be kind!’ 

Bindi got married to Chandler Powell at Australia Zoo on Wednesday – just hours after Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced new restrictions on weddings due to the coronavirus pandemic, with only five people allowed to attend.

On Sunday, the couple announced they were selling wedding candles for $49.95 to raise money for the running of Australia Zoo while it is closed. 

‘During these challenging times, we have no guests at Australia Zoo, so your online shopping support is making a huge difference,’ Bindi wrote on Instagram. 

Meanwhile, the COVID-19 pandemic continues to escalate in Australia.  

As of Sunday night, there have been 3,980 cases of coronavirus in the country, which have resulted in 16 deaths.
