Life in the outdoors is difficult enough for an orphaned animal. The likеlihood of survival is so slim, and only a miracle may sаvе the situation. Thankfully, this young koala defied the odds because her assistance arrived on time.
In Queensland, Australia, Lucy was discovered in the middle of a driveway. Because there was no shade to protect her small body from the sunlight, she became dehydrated as a result of the intense heat. Her discoverers feared for her safety, so they hurriedly sent her to the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital. Her life was going to change for the better because to the dedicated team here.
The little koala, who found solace in a teddy bear, immediately won everyone’s hearts when she arrived. She held on to that bear tightly and wouldn’t let go. It didn’t take long for Lucy to win over not only the hearts of the hospital staff but also millions of people on social media. The Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors posted on Facebook, “Meet Lucy, the lovely koala joey that is melting hearts at the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital.”
The orphaned koala showed she was resilient enough to make it through despite having pinkeye as well and quickly recovered.
The lovely little koala’s whereabouts are unclear, but according to the Australian Koala Foundation, deforestation, siсkness, and climate change have all recently caused a sharp decline in the species’ population. The iconic mammal of Australia has been classified as “functionally extinct” with fewer than 80,000 individuals remaining in the wild. That indicates that koala populations have drastically decreased to the point where the animal no longer contributes significantly to its ecology.
