The grey tide rolls on with TAMS reporting on the six latest arrivals:

Brett McNamara, Manager of Regional Operations, National Parks and Catchments, today announced that Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve has recently welcomed another six new koalas from the Otway Ranges in Victoria.

“Three female koalas and their three joeys (two females and one male) have joined the eight koalas that were released into Tidbinbilla’s Eucalypt Forest in November 2013,” Mr McNamara said.

“The three mums walked out of their carry crates and quickly scanned the environment before climbing up the closest tree with their young on back to take in the beautiful views and explore the selection of eucalypts on offer.

“At the moment the koalas are making themselves comfortable in their new home, and if they settle in as well as the previous new arrivals we will be very happy.

Long may they live, flourish and piddle (in an amiable kind of way) on free-spending tourists.

I coud hazard a guess, but I’m not really koala-fied to say one way or the other.

Are the ACT Government going to let these ones burn to death as well, or do they have a proper fire hazard plan in place this time around?

That’s one seriously contented koala.

Looks as if he’s been munching weed.

Leaf it alone, please. You’re driving me gum nuts.

Looks far too wasted to be sitting that high in a tree without a safety net being placed below.
