The iconic Aussie: this is Matilda. She’s an Eastern Grey Kangaroo, about 8 months old, and she came into our care this week. Her mother was killed by a car at Byfield but fortunately the driver checked the pouch and found this beautiful joey.

They decided to care for her themselves then release her back into the wild, but after just 2 weeks realised how hard it is to raise a baby roo.

Fortunately they came by our business card and called for help. Now in the care of experts, Matilda has a strong chance of survival and a long, healthy life ahead.
