Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital braces for Koala Trauma Season

The start of the annual Koala breeding season means the iconic creatures are on the move.
Moving about takes them out of the safety of the trees onto the ground where they all too often become victims of dog attacks and road trauma.
Making matters worse current legislation dictates that repatriated Koalas be returned to the same area where they can fall victim again.
Zoo Vets are calling for flexibility in translocation of animals to safer locations upon recovery.
