At 4.15am yesterday morning our Hotline received a call about a koala hit by a car at Happy Valley. Our rescuers were dispatched to what turned out to be a very long day.

The beautiful little girl we have named Fire Lady, had climbed over 15 metres high into a huge gum tree. Our rescuers poles only reach to 12 metres, so after multiple calls to tree climbers who were not available to assist, we called the fire service.

This rescue was a huge team effort! MFS Marion Unit 409, MFS Adelaide Unit 205 and Ranger Jake from SA Water all came to help! Huge thank you to all involved! Special thanks to MFS Firefighter John whom received a claw scratch while retrieving Fire Lady from the tree.

Fire Lady miraculously has no broken bones! She will undergo further testing over the next few days, so we will keep you updated on her progress.

Sadly we lost #1300KOALAZ Maggie. She was rescued from a suburban backyard because she had been sitting on the ground and drinking excessively. Our fears were confirmed with a diagnosis of oxalate nephrosis, so she was given peace to prevent her further pain and suffering.

As carers, some cases really get to us, and this was one of them. She had the most inquisitive personality and was always reaching for her carer when she came in to give her pain relief medication and fresh leaf. She always looked like she had a little smile on her adorable little fluffy face. Sadly her little body was just so sick.

RIP little Maggie. 🐨😢🐨

Please welcome adorable little Maggie to 1300KOALAZ!

Maggie had been sitting in someone’s backyard all day and not wanting to move away. When she was taken into care she climbed into a water tray and drank continuously for quite some time. She’s eating and moving well, however she will be off to the vets for a checkup. We are really hoping that she was drinking so much because of the recent hot weather, rather than an underlying medical condition.

Please wish Maggie all the best for her checkup!

Little #1300KOALAZ Holly loves her cherry flavoured Nilstat medication. Koala joeys develop candida in their mouths sometimes, so they are given Nilstat to help them recover from it.

There are many medications that we regularly give to koalas in care. If you would like to donate towards these medication costs it would be much appreciated. We receive no government funding, so our operations are run entirely by generous public donations and grants.

Huge Thankyou to Ledlenser for donating 16 ML6 Lanterns for our koala enclosures! They have made our carers lives sooooo much easier!

Rather than struggling with torches at night, our carers can simply hang up the lantern to light up the whole enclosure so they can work hands free with the koalas. Ledlenser, we are truly appreciative of this amazing donation!

If you are looking for a lantern, we highly recommend the Ledlenser ML6.

Little #1300KOALAZ Holly is munching her way into the weekend. She’s decided that apart from all the lovely fresh leaf that she has delivered to her daily, that she now also loves to munch on the bark of this particular branch. 
She’s had a little bit of an upset tummy this week, so the bark may be giving her additional mineral nutrients to help soothe her tummy. 
Please send Holly your well wishes for her little tummy. 🐨🐨

#1300KOALAZ Miss Sydney was found sitting in the middle of the road and not moving well. Noticing that something didn’t look quite right, a kind person called our 24/7 hotline for advice.  A rescuer was dispatched and after an assessment, the koala was taken to the vet. 

Luckily Miss Sydney hasn’t hit by a car but further investigations are underway to test for possible chlamydia as she has slight symptoms of this disease. 

Please wish her well for her further testing diagnosis. 🐨

The #1300KOALAZ hotline has been busy today taking calls about heat stressed koalas, as the temperature reaches 38 degrees.

One of those calls was for a male koala named Roger who was found lying on the ground in a backyard in Mount Osmond. The member of the public called our hotline for advice and we recommended offering him water from a shallow dish.  Poor Roger immediately drunk the water for over 20 minutes and was not bothered being approached. This is a clear sign that he could he suffering from kidney disease. He was rescued by one of volunteers and taken to @adelaidevet_ Trinity Gardens for assessment. Fingers crossed for Roger!

Please leave a shallow bowl of water out for all wildlife in the hot weather. Add a rock and sticks to the water so other creatures can safely drink from it.

If you see a sick, injured or orphaned koala please phone our hotline on 1300 562 529 for help or advice.

The two @ring cameras that our fantastic 1300KOALAZ community donated are currently being used in little Holly’s enclosure. 

Watch the video with sound on! Holly’s carer heard a nearby male koala bellowing and then thanks to the Ring cameras was able to see little Holly responding with grunts. It’s very reassuring to see Holly going through the normal koala development stages. 

The cameras are extremely valuable for our carers to be able to monitor the koalas behaviour to make sure they are well and developing as they should. 

Koalas can exhibit subtle behaviour changes which may indicate health problems, so regular monitoring is vital to pick up on any changes to allow early intervention. 

And of course Holly’s carer had to come out to check on her, complete in her dressing gown and slippers!! 🤣🤣🤣

If you would like to donate for more cameras for koala monitoring, please head over to our website. Unfortunately we’ve had a glitch with our payment options, so please only donate via PayPal or eft until we get it sorted.

To keep adorable little #1300KOALAZ Holly hydrated with the hot weather this week, her carer is adding @vetafarm Spark to her water. 

After we bottle feed koalas, we always syringe  flush their mouths with water to make sure that none of the formula stays in their little cheeks. 

Huge thanks to the ongoing support of Vetafarm who donate these much needed products to 1300KOALAZ.
