Koala joey ar­rives

The Weekend Post - - News -

A BABY koala has trav­elled more than 5000km from Perth to Cairns to find a new home at a Far North­ern zoo.Wildlife Habi­tat Port Dou­glas has wel­comed its new­est res­i­dent, a 12-month-old joey named Marri. The koala’s name has been de­rived from a species of eu­ca­lyp­tus trees na­tive to her home state of WA. Wildlife Habi­tat wildlife man­ager Rabecca Lynch said the zoo could not be hap­pier with the ar­rival of their fluffy new res­i­dent. “We’re re­ally happy with how the move went — Marri is adapt­ing re­ally well, she’s a very com­fort­able and con­fi­dent kind of koala, also very re­laxed and cu­ri­ous about her new home.”
