A few weeks ago #1300KOALAZ were called to rescue a baby koala on the road.

We were shocked to see just how small the joey was. At just 560g he should have been tucked up safe in his mothers pouch. We could only assume mum had been hit by a car and the joey thrown from her pouch. Mum was not with her joey.

The joey was rushed to Wildlife Nurse SA Kerry, who is our specialist with very young joeys. He was given a thorough work up and x-rayed at SASH and found to have a fractured nose and femur and contusions to his lungs.

For the next 4 days our rescuers went out daily to try and find mum. We successfully brought down a female koala, unfortunately she was not lactating so we surmised it was not mum after all. She did however have symptoms of chlamydia so she remains in care with us while she is treated. We never did find mum.

Due to the severity of the joey's injuries we did not put him on our page earlier as, to be honest, we were not sure he would survive.

But what would we know, Daniel, as he is now named, is a fighter. The vets believe his fractures will heal well without surgical intervention but we take it one day at a time. Daniel is not out of the woods yet and still has some hurdles to overcome.

His lungs have improved and his nose swelling gone down, you can see how swollen his little nose was in the video below. We are all keeping everything crossed that this little one makes it but know only too well that joeys can go down hill very quickly.

We will do everything in our power to give Daniel every possible chance of a happy outcome.

If you find a sick, injured, orphaned or distressed koala please call 1300KOALAZ (1300 562 529) for help or advice.

#1300KOALAZ' Feisty Fern and baby Juniper have gone home.

After a few days in care they were released back to their home area to settle back in. We are keeping everything crossed that Juniper grows well and doesn't play up for Fern.

It must be so hard climbing with that lump in her pouch!

If you find a sick, injured, orphaned or distressed koala please call 1300KOALAZ (1300 562 529) for help or advice.

Darcy was rescued after he had a fall. There were two male koalas in the area so we guess they had been fighting over territory.

Anyway Darcy had blood on him so was brought in for a check. Thankfully he was fine just a graze to his chin and a bruised ego so he was immediately released back out in the wild.

Mira is a great example of what organisations can achieve when they help each other out.

A couple of months ago one of our rescuers attended a rescue but needed help getting Mira down. Luckily another group, SKER, had also had a call about Mira and turned up and assisted in rescuing her.

Mira had been hit by a car and was in pretty poor shape so thinking only of getting Mira attention as quickly as possible our rescuer agreed to let SKER take her into care, as they had a vet closer than we did.

This video is the culmination of that collaboration and Mira recently went home, fit and healthy.

If you find a sick, injured, orphaned or distressed koala please call 1300KOALAZ (1300 562 529) for help or advice.

Helping each other should always have priority!

I don't understand why any rescue would not help another. It's not a competition.

1300Koalaz I had followed Mira’s rehabiliation journey through with Southern Koala and Echidna Rescue Ltd. I didn’t know she drew your attention too! 😃

Well a little later than anticipated.

It gives us great pleasure to introduce Fern's joey now named Juniper. Fern's carer had a hard job deciding what name to pick as there were so many good ideas but eventually it was decided that Juniper fitted the little one to a t.

Be prepared for a cuteness overload.

#1300KOALAZ' Feisty Fern's joey decided it was warm enough this morning to emerge completely from Fern's pouch and sit in her lap whilst it looked around.

Now the little one is out and about periodically we need a name for it. We are unsure of the gender at the moment as we try to keep hands off so need a gender neutral name to go with Fern.

Put your thinking caps on and let us know if you think it is a boy or a girl and what your suggestion is for a name.

Ahhhhh precious Feisty Fern, you have such a gorgeous bubba. To go with Fern.... Shade, Frond or Feather. 🐨💚🐨🌿 Thank you for everything you're doing for them 🙏💚

Hello, wee one! Welcome to the world, special baby. You are wanted and you are loved. I have a name suggestion that could work for either sex. It's Callisto. Callisto is one of Saturn's moons. I think it's a great name!💖💖🐨

#1300KOALAZ Feisty Fern was at the vet today getting a checkup. As part of her examination, the vet  gave her joey a health check so this gave us a chance to find out the gender. 

What’s your guess? 

We will share the results in the next few days and pick a name for her joey from your suggestions 🥰🐨

Feisty Fern came in recently with suspected chlamydia.
Her chlamydia test came back clear but she is suffering from cystitis. During her examination it was discovered she had a velvet joey in her pouch. A velvet joey is one which has a light covering of fur.
Thanks to the cameras in the enclosure Fern's carer managed to capture this video of the joey playing peekaboo.
Could it be any cuter? 🥰🐨
