This is one of the many koalas housed at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary. Most are brought in by the public after being hit by cars. Although they are quite nimble in the tree tops, they move slowly along the ground and have poor eyesight which unfortunately results in many accidents. Like all marsupials, the females have a pouch for their young, though like it's closest relative, the wombat, the koala's faces backwards. This is to stop the baby koala getting knocked in the head while the mother is climbing.
