Adelaide Koala Rescue

Adelaide's heatwave is having a huge impact on koalas. Koalas generally only come to the ground to move between trees. In extreme heat they may seek out shady spots in gardens low in a tree or on the ground. A koala on the ground though needs attention. If only hot and bothered, a bowl of water and spritz from a sprinkler may be enough. In SA though many koalas suffer from renal disease. These koalas are already dehydrated, lethargic and feeling sick and the hot weather makes their condition worse. Please seek advice on a koala sitting on the ground - if in doubt we'll check the koala out
