Koalas

Two shots of koalas at the Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve.

Tidbinbilla was devastated by bushfires in 2003 that passed through the area and continued on to destroy 500 homes in Canberra. A great deal of wildlife was lost in the reserve, including the koala population. One koala survived, badly singed but hanging on. He was named Lucky. Today a population is being reintroduced. They roam through a large enclosed area, but some like to rest in a special shelter accessible to visitors.

Koala’s sole food source – eucalyptus leaves – are a poor source of energy, so koalas spend a lot of time sleeping and resting. You know that hazy, just woke up feeling? For koalas, that’s about all you get.

Someone looks like they woke up on the wrong side of the tree!
