Mama Koala and Joey Return to the Wild After Vaccination

The Currumbin Wildlife Hospital launched koala Cassidy and her joey Cooly into the wild after the pair acquired a chlamydia vaccine in Queensland, Australia, on Thursday, July 14. Cassidy and Cooly had been part of the wildlife hospital’s Koala Chlamydia Vaccine Research Program. The hospital reported 60 p.c of its koala admissions are due to chlamydia as “the disease is one of the largest threats posed to the species’ survival and affects also fertility.” The Australian authorities listed koalas as endangered in February of 2022 in accordance to the World Wildlife Fund. Video posted by Currumbin Wildlife Hospital on Thursday reveals the pair’s launch in Queensland, Australia. The hospital defined the program’s aim is to “capture and vaccinate 10 percent of the sub-adult koalas per year from the local Elanora population and monitor that population and level of chlamydia over five years.” Credit: Currumbin Wildlife Hospital through Storyful
