Gem heard Sam's comment about beckoning Skippy, and decided to give it a go.

 

Here's a video of Gem climbing: Siren Gem's great escape III.

Bonny's joey has been officially named; the winning name is "Bonny Blaze". :)

I think "cute" pretty much sums it up ;~)

April 23 2007- #149!!

These guys are hanging around the koala hospital & don't seem bothered by people. They're getting meat-treats, so that's probably why!

 

One flew by my legs & hung out looking for worms, near where i was cutting leaf, so i quickly ran inside for my camera... and took a million pictures ;)

 

This is one of the last shot's I took - he's sitting on the fence of Kempsey's yard here. I'll probably upload more later :-)

The Adopt A Wild Koala Program is the major source of fund raising for the Port Macquarie Koala Hospital, which is a charitable organisation, working to help save the Koala population . Links is one of many koalas available for adoption. If you'd like to help make a difference, you could consider adopting little Linksy! :))

This is Links VTR, an orphaned joey. He was rescued near Link Road and then carried home on a Honda VTR, safely tucked into the hospital supervisor's bike jacket.

 

This photo was taken while Linksie was being lovingly cared for at home by his human foster Mum, Barb, before continuing his R&R at the hospital. Last year he also endured another mishap when he fell from a tree and dented his nose. These days though Linksie is a plump, happy and healthy little juvenile koala whose earlier setbacks are now far behind him!

 

Links is a favourite among we Koala Hospital paparazzi as you can see by all the Flickr photos tagged Links VTR. You can 'adopt' Linksie from the Koala Hospital website. Adoptions are a primary source of funding for the hospital to continue their critical work. They receive no government funding.

 

I didn't take this photo -- it's a scan of a printed snapshot, so it was originally very flat and dark. I cleaned it up in Picasa and then "ortonized" it by following these instructions.

Little Kimmy was out of her tree today, yay! I got to see her and say bye byes! She's been putting on weight, though is still not near the weight to be released. Who knows, she might still be here when I get back ;-)

 

These will probably be my last koala hospital photos, until around June 10 - I'm going to England! Also, I just noticed - my photostream has been viewed 5,000+ times!! Thanks to everyone who has visited, left a comment, faved, invited or awarded an image. I'm glad people enjoy them. I really enjoy flickr & love my pro account (thanks mum!) :-)

 

Oh & another note: my #1 koala super model was released on Friday!! I was sad to see him go, as I'll miss him, but happy that he's back were he belongs & I really hope Siren Gem has better luck out there this time :)

 

To keep up to date with the koalas, you can check Sams (koalawranger) photostream & blog - this is how I'm going to be getting my koala fix for the next month ;-)

Although it somewhat resembles him. :)

Port Macquarie has a large koala population and this being the case we also have a koala hospital and all the time I have lived here I have never once gone to visit it but last week I did.

It was really great, you could walk through and look at them in their tree sleeping and there was also a viewing window to the hospital surgery area but when I was there nothing was going on.

Many of the koalas there are there because of dog attacks, vehicle accidents or burn victims who have been transported to the hospital to recover.

Here is a link to the hospital if you are interested.

I have seen koalas before but not close up and I was thrilled to do this.

Being a tourist in my hometown has made me view it so differently.

.....awwwwwwwwwww!

"I am so pleased the sun has come out a little, but it is still so chilly!"

Poor Bon!

Sooty's little joey has begun poking its head out of the pouch! It is the most adorable thing ever :)

 

Sooty sits here every morning, waiting for the sun. You can see a little golden light on the both of them :)

Haha, Robyn went to make up his formula - we were in cleaning Nancy's aviary, because it was forgotten due to maintenance on the aviary that morning whoops! - & he was impatiently grabbing at me. He caught my hand as I was trying to take pics, :P His claws are very sharp!!

one of the four joey's currently residing in yard 6. looks like its the start of baby koala fever season 2008. & i'm glad to have gotten one (clear!) shot before she scampered up the tree (*inserts grumbling about broken camera & hating this one*).

"you look a bit wet. is it raining out?"

 

yes martin, its raining, you're the only one not wet -_-

 

**UPDATE: Warrego Martin responded very well to treatment, and was released a couple of weeks ago. Hopefully he continues to do well out in the wild, and we don't see him back at the hospital. To be honest, although I am very happy he is back out there, I will miss his gorgeous face**

Being treated for conjunctivitis, as you can see in her left eye.

I find the way they hold the leaf in their hands so cute :o)
