Finding accessible eucalyptus leaves for volunteers to cut for koalas in overnight care is very challenging. This exciting new initiative at Nerang County Paradise Parklands is helping koalas and volunteers.
Volunteer wildlife carers need fresh fodder everyday for animals in their care such as possums, gliders and birds. KDV Sports at Carrara has come to the rescue and is undertaking this greatly needed resource by planting native species in their golf course surrounds.
Did you know that koalas also eat native blossoms? Whilst they are synonymous for only eating eucalyptus leaves, they also enjoy eating native flowers such as these vibrant bottlebrush flowers.
The moment that drives all koala and wildlife rescuers - to see an animal rehabilitated and released back to the wild.
