The Little Koala Joey Was Found Soaked, Trembling & Alone
We all need some good news, right? When we saw that this adorable little orphaned koala joey had been rescued by a local superwoman during the awful floods in Queensland, we had to share it with you! For months, Darcy Modina and her family had seen a koala joey and its mum on their 10 acre home — just below South-East Queensland’s largest dam.
The young joey, later named ‘Raine’, was found near the river’s edge; drenched, trembling, and alone, with her mum nowhere in sight. As the water levels rose and the evacuation alert was sent out, Darcy knew that she couldn’t leave the joey behind.
“As soon as we wrapped the towel around her, she was open to being warm and letting us hold her. She wasn’t scared at all, just exhausted,” said Darcy.
