Healsville Animal Sanctuary.

As I posted last week, I will be headed to Australia at the end of May with four of my students. We received an email that highlighted the residents of one stop on our itinerary - Healesville Animal Sanctuary, home to the Australian Wildlife Health Centre.

The Sanctuary has played a major roll in the recovery efforts from the Victorian Bush fires earlier this year. Some of the sanctuary’s most common refugees were injured koalas, as they were often too slow to get out of burning areas, and many received burns on their paws. Once recovered, these koalas will return to the wild, and released into areas not affected by the recent ravaging wildfires. We are all county the days!
