Teenagers Fill Car Full Of Koalas To Save Them From Bushfires

As Australia continues to be devastated by the horrendous bushfires – with half a billion animals and perhaps entire species wiped out – there are still a few positive stories, and this is one of them.

The short video shows a car filled with koalas that have been rescued in a car. It was filmed on Kangaroo Island, known as Australia’s answer to the Galapagos Islands because of the rich biodiversity present there.

Around half of Kangaroo Island is thought to have been destroyed by the fires. It’s estimated that more than 20,000 koalas have died, over half of the island’s 50,000-strong population, but these lads made sure it didn’t spell the end for at least some of them.

The two boys in question are 19-year-old Micah and 18-year-old Caleb. While we’re not exactly sure how many koalas they managed to rescue, they reckon that it’s around 20.

Of that number, six of the poor marsupials were orphaned and two of them were mothers with children.Click To Continue Reading This Story. . .
