Like our last post with Tinkerbell, we thought we’d share some more photos of her. You can see all of them going to:

What an excellent photograph!

Tiny joey koala feeding

That may have been the cutest video on the whole of the internet! Little Tinkerbell was being fed after being rescued from the Koala Hospital in Port Macquerie, New South Wales. 

The Koala Hospital in Port Macquarie, Australia, is the world’s first hospital dedicated solely to the care and preservation of koalas. The Hospital has a treatment room, eight Intensive Care Units, a 24 Hour Rescue and Treatment operation and multiple recovery yards. The Hospital has a research affiliation with the University of Sydney, Australia. You can help them do miracles saving koalas by adopting a baby koala just like Little Tinkerbell!

Or if you are interested in helping save koalas, you can learn how in the detailed guides written by professionals at the Port Macquarie Koala Hospital. They sell them here.

Koalas sleep 20+ hours a day. They save their energy for eating and loving. =)
