Forest Glen Sanctuary

The koala and me Yes, sure. We all prefer to find the animals in the wild, approach them like a hunter and get them like a collector. And yes, later we could do so with some wallabys. But at the end koalas are rare animals, difficult to find, we didn't have time, we are tourists and all tourists are supposed to do silly things.

And I do prefer to have a captivated, sleepy Koala in my arms for half a minute instead of leaving Koala country without ever having seen a single one. It was really interesting to feel their fur is quite different, as they don't need it to keep them warm enough.
Apart from that the care and research for wildlife costs money and where should it come from, if not from interested people? So I do think such an artificial event with a photographer is a good and nice thing to do.
