MEET 🐨 KOALA “CRUSOE” (aka Robinson Crusoe)
🌳 Brendon rescued this koala back in mid-November. The rescue was high and challenging to say the least and I don’t have any photos of the situation as Maree and I both had our hands full holding the ladder and passing up equipment.
🏥 The koala had early stages of chlamydial conjunctivitis and we knew that if we could get medical intervention sooner than later- he would have a good chance at recovery.
🐨 “Crusoe” was a big male koala and he was successfully medically treated with joint care efforts between the Rspca & Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospitals. Yesterday we had the pleasure of returning him back to his home.
🙏 Thanks to wildlife carer Samantha for assistance with transport, and to Jan and Tim the property owners for providing such a wonderful safe habitat for wildlife on their property. Jan is a wonderful wildlife photographer and sent me this great photo comparison image of before and after.
Good luck “Crusoe”
