Iggy Bear

Bare-nosed Wombat

Found all alone, wondering aimlessly in a paddock full of cows,

Little Bear was petrified and exhausted, covered in scratches tics & bites. The little pink pads on his hands and feet were worn and dirty. Mum was no where to be found. Sadly Bear is now an orphan, although his  journey is far from over.

Violet

Eastern Grey Kangaroo

Violet was found in the pouch of her mother on the roadside. We don't know much else about her, except that she is a very loving and confident little miss. she is thriving and loves to hop around the yard. She has recently gone  to be with her new mob getting ready for the day that she becomes a big girl and goes back to nature.
