Chang the Lonely Grouper from Cairns Aquarium has hooked the hearts of local kids.

Chang’s spirits sank when the Aquarium closed its doors in March, because he missed watching visitors drift past his tank.

After reading about Chang’s plight, a class of Year 1 students from Torbanlea State School on the Fraser Coast sent him a care package of letters and self-portraits.

Aquarium staff say Chang loves the pictures, and that they will eventually form part of a display in a net gain for the lonely fish.
