Ellie & Eden
One of our most emotional, heartbreaking but also rewarding experiences is the rescue of two bushfire orphans; Ellie and Eden. These young girls were found in a completely burnt plantation during the devastating 2019/2020 Kangaroo Island Bushfires. They were found with their mothers, who were in terrible condition with their feet burnt to the bone and sadly had to be euthanised. Even with their condition at the time, it didn't stop them from trying to protect their joeys and was an incredible sight to witness. Ellie and Eden however, were luckily healthy with no injuries. They were then captured and have been at Kangala ever since, living a wonderful life on a path to a better future.
Memories of when we were rescuing these cute joeys at the height of the 2019/2020 Bushfires, it is amazing to see how far we have come with all the outstanding support and kindness from all of you. From the 7 orphaned joeys on the 'Kangaroo Couch' to a now rapidly growing number of rescues, as well as an ever-expanding sanctuary and wildlife centre.
