Anwen, one of the koalas that F.Fonseca adopted, is completely recovered and back in its natural habitat!

It was in September the fires that destroyed Australia's natural habitat for huge animals started. F.Fonseca immediately decided to help Koala Conservation Australia Inc. koala rescue hospital by adopting two, Anwen and Paul. Look here.

Today, in times of a pandemic where we are bombarded with less good news, we received an email that cheered us immensely and made us sure that we will always be associated with good causes, which will effectively make a difference even on the other side of the world.
 
Dear Carlos Santos,
 
We are sending you this email because you very kindly adopted Anwen who was the first female koala brought into the Koala Hospital as a result of the devastating bushfires which ravaged the Mid North Coast of New South Wales and many other parts of Australia at the end of last year. 
Anwen is about 4-5 years old, and had badly burnt hands, feet, arms and fur.  For months she sat quietly in a basket in an intensive care unit. When it was decided her wounds had healed enough to no longer need dressing she was moved to an external, rehabilitation yard. Although quiet, she was active, cheeky and enjoyed moving around her enclosure and eating leaf.
The current times are very challenging for everyone and we wanted to bring you a good news story to hopefully lift your spirits!   Anwen was ready to go home and was released back to her home range last Friday, 3rd April, 2020.
We would like to thank you for the wonderful support you gave to Anwen through our Adopt a Wild Koala Programme. Without your support Anwen may not have received the excellent care she was given which allowed her to heal and flourish. Our aim is to rescue, rehabilitate and release koalas back to their home range where possible.
While it was very sad to see Anwen go we know that this is the very best outcome. We only have 18 koalas on the Adopt a Wild Koala programme but in normal circumstances we treat more than 300 koalas a year.  We are hoping that you will leave your adoption in place until it is due for renewal to allow us to continue to care for the other koalas currently at the Port Macquarie Koala Hospital. If you choose to do this, you don't need to do anything and we will contact you about a month before your adoption is due to expire.
 
Best regards,
Sue Ashton, President
Koala Conservation Australia
 

Remember here the other solidarity campaign that F.Fonseca organized to help Australia.
