Adopt a Wild Koala - Welcome to CW and Franklin

Evans Head CW
On examination CW was found to have a ruptured left eye and minor limb injuries – consistent with being hit by a car. His left eye was removed, and he was placed into care and was treated for his injuries. CW will be part of the hospital’s breeding program.
Ballina Franklin
This young male koala was admitted into care, responding well to treatment with his care progressing as expected.
Ballina Franklin is not only now part of our permanent team of koalas, but he is now an integral part of our wild koala breeding program – something we are sure he will handle quite well!
