Ryder the koala joey
This week’s patient is Ryder, this precious koala joey is in care because his mother was killed from a vehicle hit. In this footage Ryder is waking from anesthesia following a vet check so he is a little sleepy. Watch how he snuggles into his teddy, this is for comfort because he should still be with his mother.
Sadly many of the koalas admitted to Currumbin Wildlife Hospital are suffering from injuries sustained from human impact. This includes vehicle hits, domestic animal attacks and habitat destruction. You can help patients like Ryder by slowing down near ‘koala’s cross here signs’ and keeping your pets inside at night. Only together can we save our wildlife.
