It’s always nice to read about people who dedicate their lives to saving animals. And if you learn of such children with a good heart, then you rejoice doubly.
Izzy Bee, 10, has watched her parents save koalas since she was a child. The girl’s family lives on Magnetic Island. Many koalas live in this area and some cubs are left without a mother for various reasons.
Izzy’s parents couldn’t calmly look at the babies in pain and started bringing them home. They began to take care of the cubs, feed them, and when they grow up they release them into the wild.
The girl grew up among the little koalas and began to take care of them, when she was still very young.
Now her pet is baby Kirky. He lacked physical contact with his mother and refused to eat. The girl did not let the baby out of her hands, constantly hugged him, trying to replace the parent. The little koala started feeling better, and started eating.
Izzy has such a wonderful feature that calms found babies.
The little beauty even managed to become famous. She was filmed by the Animal Planet channel in one of their documentaries, whose heroes were people who take care of wild animals.
Izzy’s mother worked as a veterinarian, so she knows how to care for and feed the little ones.
The family gets used to each animal they raise, and then it’s hard to part with them when they release them back into their natural habitat.
Izzy’s parents built a small hotel for their fun quarters. Now they have four animals.
