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

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.

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.

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

Poor Bon!

This Koala was a resident at the Port Macquarie Koala hospital. It was the most active Koala I have ever seen.

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

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 :-)

.....awwwwwwwwwww!

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*).

Shazza usually spends her time high in the tree in her yard. However, she was down sitting in one of the bundles of leaves in a pot on her gunyah Sunday morning. It looked like she'd made a nest in here, haha. I don't use the canon much (packed it because it was overcast/rainy), & unfortunatly the battiers were about to die -- it was hit & miss trying to get a picture before they drained completely. Was pleased to get at least one clear shot of this cute little bugger. :)

(2007-12-30) "Otto" was spotted in a tree in someones front yard, with a noticably red, dirty bottom. He was, very reluctantly, removed from the tree, & bought into the hospital to be checked & treated.

I think she was getting shy ;~) I moved the leaf around, so that some visitors could see her, where we proceeded to gush at her cuteness ;~) I turned to see her curled like this, and couldn't resist capturing it!

A sleepy Koala from the Port Macquarie Koala Hospital.
