Meet Makaia, he’s one very special Goodfellow’s Tree Kangaroo. When he was only five weeks old, he lost his mum. He needed a nice warm pouch to grow big and strong in, so Adelaide Zoo tried something that had never been done before… a Yellow-foot Rock-wallaby was found to be his surrogate mum. Up until now this special breeding technique, known as ‘cross-fostering’, has only been done with closely related wallaby species.
Pichu lamb was rescued at just 2 days old after his mother died during birth. The farmer didn’t want to spend the time and effort hand rearing him so decided to slaughter him instead. Thankfully a relative was visiting the farm that very weekend and when she saw his sweet little face she knew she had to try and help. She took him home with her and then rang us here at the sanctuary. He is one of the loveliest little angels in the world!
