RECENT RESCUES AT ROWA
Eastern Grey Kangaroo
While we do everything we can to rehabilitate these dear little souls, sometimes their Mumma needs them more than we do.
Minke, you filled our hearts with pure joy. You taught us the importance of valuing each and every moment. You gave us the opportunity to heal our hearts through deepening the love within ourselves. Most of all, you reminded us how precious life really is...priceless.

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.
