#1300KOALAZ' Herbert has gone home.
After a successful spell in the gunyah it was time to wave goodbye to little Herbert.
It is so wonderful when we get to release a healthy koala back to the wild and to be honest these days it seems like a rare occurrence.
So you can imagine how happy we were to release a young boy like Herbert back out to the wild where hopefully he can go on and make lots of koala babies.
Introducing #1300koalaz Paradise Pete! 

This charming koala was rescued from Paradise recently due to difficulties in ascending a slippery tree. Following a thorough vet examination, it was discovered that Pete has mild arthritis in his hind legs. 

However, rest assured, Pete is currently under vigilant observation with one of our carers to ensure he can climb well before being released back into his natural habitat. 🐨🐨

🌿 Heartbreaking News from #1300KOALAZ 🐨

It is with heavy hearts that we share the tragic loss of our beloved koala Firelady. After being hit by a car, she came into our care and underwent rehabilitation, bravely battling through her injuries. Despite also being diagnosed with chlamydia, she fought on with incredible strength and resilience. 

We were overjoyed to release her back into the wild, hoping for a bright future ahead. However, it is with deep sadness that we announce her passing. She was found drowned in a swimming pool, a devastating and unexpected turn of events.

The entire team at 1300KOALAZ is devastated by this loss. We will always remember her courage and the determination she showed throughout her journey. 

In light of this tragedy, we urge everyone to take precautions to prevent koalas from drowning in swimming pools. Providing alternative water sources and installing rubber mats secured to the side of pools that koalas can grip, to help these beautiful creatures climb out safely.  Some suggestions are posted in the comments. Rubber mats need to be draped over the edge of the pool into the water and securely tied to a structure to prevent them falling into the pool. 

Let’s work together to protect our precious wildlife.

Rest in peace, dear Firelady. You will be dearly missed. 🕊️💚

#1300KOALAZ Beautiful Fern was found wandering around the backstreets of Holden Hill recently.  A kind member of public noticed that she wasn’t looking very well, so called our 24/7 free hotline. 

A rescuer was sent immediately and took Fern to the vet for a checkup where she was diagnosed with cystitis.  She also potentially has chlamydia, so we are waiting for these test results to be processed. 

Fern is being given pain relief and lots of TLC while we work with the vets to determine her treatment plan. 

Please send Fern your best wishes for a positive outcome.  We all have our fingers crossed for this beautiful little girl. 🐨🐨🐨

Sadly two more koalas were hit by cars over last weekend and didn’t make it 😭. The beautiful boy pictured below was hit in Wilunga and even though he sustained a terribly broken leg, he climbed a nearby tree on the main road.  We don’t know how long he had been in the tree, as the accident wasn’t reported. 

We are extremely grateful that a member of the public saw him there and called us to do a welfare check.  He could not walk so was taken to a vet for X-rays where it was confirmed that his leg was badly broken, his injury consistent with being hit by a car. 

The second beautiful boy was hit by a car at Crafers.  Sadly his injuries were too severe for him to be saved. 

If you ever see a koala and think that something just isn’t quite right, please call our free 24/7 Hotline on 1300 562 529, for assistance or advice. 🐨🐨🐨
Beautiful little #1300KOALAZ Herbert is feeling so much better after recovering from his fall out of a tree.  He’s currently staying in our pre-release tree yard to ensure that he is completely well before being released back into the bush.  Please wish him well for his continued recovery!

Beautiful little #1300KOALAZ Eve was found crossing busy Mount Barker Rd in the Adelaide Hills on Sunday evening.  She was dodging cars and extremely lucky that a kind member of the public stopped traffic to get her off the road, but she kept on changing her mind which way she wanted to go!

One of our awesome rescuers was driving past and jumped into action.  She rescued the koala from the busy road using the member of publics jumper, as that’s all she had on her at the time!  Poor Eve was quite distressed after her close encounter with so many cars, so she was taken off to the vet the following day for a checkup. 

Thankfully, Eve is completely healthy, and she has a baby pinkie on board! 

She’s being released back into her territory but well away from the busy road.  Please wish mummy Eve and her baby joey all the best for happy and long lives amongst the gumtrees! 🐨♥️🐨
