Meet some of the survivors of the recent bushfires in Pechey, Queensland. Percy, Penny and Jasmine are currently under veterinary care at our RSPCA Wildlife Hospital at Wacol.
As rescue groups have been able to gain access to the affected areas. A further 11 koalas have come into our care over the weekend. 8 koalas between 8pm last night (Tues 26th November) and 8am this morning (5 from fire affected areas and 3 trauma).
Since the 1st November 117 koalas have come into RSPCA Queensland. The Wildlife Hospital is already “under siege” because of trauma season and the fires have merely escalated an already busy period.
