6a010535647bf3970b01bb07e11c54970d-800wiHolly: U wanna hang on this tree and eat eucalyptus?
Bai’yali’: That sounds like the PLAN.
Holly: We did that last weekend, though.
Bai’yali’: And your point is….?

Holly is one and Bai’yali’ is 15 months old- they live at Taronga Zoo in NSW, Australia. No, we don’t know which is which- they’re not wearing their little Koala football jerseys.

Quoting the ZooBorns article, the pair “recently moved into a “Koala Crèche,”….

“…designed to replicate Koala behaviors in the wild. From 12 months onwards, Koala joeys leave their mothers to find their own home ranges.”

The Koalas Need YOUR Help!

Fires in Victoria and South Australia have left some Koalas with burned paws! International Fund for Animal Welfare/Australia (IFAW) has launched an appeal for mittens to be made for the furballs, some of which have burned paws due to the fires. :(. The mittens need to be 4.9″ wide, and 5.9″ tall.

Send to: IFAW, 6 Belmore Street–Surry Hills–Sydney NSW 2010. Phone: +61 2 9288 4900, and 1 800 00 IFAW. Questions? Send ’em an email!

The Perks Of The Office

5894704-3x2-940x627Sure, Air Force One ranks right up there. (Ya get a nice leather bomber jacket with your name stitched on- free!) Marine One, too- nice ride for short hops. Camp David, that’s a nice place for a weekend hang. And you can probably score the best table at any restaurant, worldwide. But when you get to snorgle koalas, well, that’s as good as it gets right there.
