Burns Victim LINR Anwen released

Anwen takes one last look at Clinical Director, Cheyne Flanagan

LINR Anwen is about 4-5 years old, and had badly burnt hands, feet, arms and fur.  For months she sat quietly in a basket in an intensive care unit. When it was decided her wounds had healed enough to no longer need dressing she was moved to an external, rehabilitation yard. Although quiet, she was active, cheeky and enjoyed moving around her enclosure and eating leaf. 

On 3rd April, 2020, just 5 months after she was rescued, Anwen had recovered sufficiently and the habitat had regenerated enough for her to be released back to her home range. 

We would like to thank everyone for the wonderful support they gave to Anwen through our Adopt a Wild Koala Programme. Without their support Anwen may not have received the excellent care she was given which allowed her to heal and flourish. Our aim is to rescue, rehabilitate and release koalas back to their home range where possible.  While it was very sad to see Anwen go we know that this was the very best outcome for her.
