Be Still My Heart! Koalas Are Being Released From Hospital And Back Into The Bush Following The Bushfires.
In case you needed reminding of the good in the world.
Among the areas that were hit the hardest were the koala habitats in the mid-north coast region of NSW.
And at the centre of it all were the staff from the Port Macquarie Koala Hospital — who garnered international acclaim for their efforts to save bushfire-affected koalas.
Now, five months on, the first koalas are being released back to their original habitat and I could honestly cry with joy. 😭😭😭
26 koalas will be released over the next few days, with habitats having recovered much earlier than expected due to significant rainfall in the mid-north coast area.
"It marks a proud moment for Australia, to see our koala population and habitat starting to recover from what was such a devastating time."
Due to current coronavirus restrictions, the Port Macquarie Koala Hospital is closed to visitors. But you can still adopt a koala if you want to show your support!
