Butters was adopted by Koala Defi May 2021.
The story of Butters the koala
Friends of the Koala found me in May 2020 when I was about 9 months old. I was found next to a busy road, desperately trying to climb a large tree after my mother abandoned me. As I was only a joey and needed round the clock care, I went home with a volunteer koala carer. After a couple of months with my human mum, I began spending my days in koala kindy, playing with other joeys and learning necessary koala skills.
Once I was a bit bigger, I moved into what’s called a plantation kindy. It’s still a fenced area, but I could practice my climbing skills, eat leaves from a real tree and experience all types of weather for the first time! Vet staff kept checking on me over a couple of weeks and were thrilled with my progress.
So after a final assessment, I was released back into the wild.
Thank you for adopting me! Your adoption helps other sick and injured koalas in the Northern Rivers.
