Mouth-to-mouth rescues Koala

A Koala in Melbourne has been saved by a wildlife rescuer and fire fighters by getting heart massage and mouth-to-mouth resuscitation (the guardian). After being hit by a car the koala had climbed up a tree and passed out. The rescuers threw him down from the tall tree into a blanket, and immediatly started the CPR.

Apparently koalas often flee up in trees when they are hit by cars or bitten by dogs, and unfortunately the rescuers get many calls about koalas. This little guy has been named Sean and is now resting at a wildlife shelter.

To help koalas yourself you can adopt one here, maybe a little joey? – what I learned today is what baby koalas are called 🙂
