May 27, 2020

The news about the birth of the first Koala since the devastating bushfires in Australia has sent a vibe of excitement among the animal lovers.

And when the news was pushed on the internet, the netizens went gaga and they congratulated the Australian Reptile Park authorities- the place where the koala was born.

Sharing a video of the newly born koala, the park authorities wrote, "We have a very special announcement... Our very first koala of the season has popped out of Mums pouch to say hello!"

"Keepers have decided to name her Ash!" they further wrote in the caption.

"Ash is the first koala born at the park since the tragic Australian bushfires and is a sign of hope for the future of Australia's native wildlife (sic)," the caption added.

The video went viral within a very short interval of time and netizens flooded it with comments saying that they loved the video.


The bushfire in Australia in 2019-2020 was extremely devastating, which caused a lot of devastation to the country's wildlife.

Over 46 million acres of land were burned in thousands of fires from June 2019 till February 2020.

The fire destroyed around 80 per cent of the Blue Mountains World Heritage area in New South Wales and 53 per cent of the Gondwana world heritage rainforests in Queensland (QLD).

Nearly 2 million animals were killed in the bushfire, which also included koalas in large numbers.

Even though bushfires are common in Australia, however, the last bushfire was far more devastating in compared to the bushfires in the last few decades.
