Watch the koala bear extend its hand when help arrives ...
See story here.
Rescuers said it was extremely rare to get so close to a koala. If you've ever tried to help a harmed or injured animal, you know that some will and some won't. The same with humans. Sam recognized help when it arrived and reached out for it. And therefore she will survive. Also with the help of her now love, Bob.
Said Tree, the rescuer:
"I yelled out for some water and I sat down with her and tipped the water up. It was in my hand and she reached for the bottle then put her right claw into my left hand which was cold so it must have given her some pain relief and she just left it there. It was just amazing."
Sometimes we need a rest from the battlefield. Read about the Retreats offered by Executive Coach Dorothy Larios, so aptly named The Rest of Your Life.
"A Retreat is: a time to withdraw from all the distractions and responsibilities in the world; a place and time to get re-acquainted with yourself; a solitary space for renewal, a safe haven, a snug den or a refuge."
Koalas are so much a part of life in Australia.
