Lake Innes Nature Reserve Anwen was released back to the wild on 3 April, 2020 after 5 months' rehabilitation at the Koala Hospital.
This gentle young female koala was the third burns patient to be admitted from the Lake Innes fireground in November 2019. Anwen had suffered singeing to 90% of her body and radiant burns to her hindquarters with burns to the pads on her hands and feet.
Anwen responded well to the treatment and care she was given at the Koala Hospital and loved the daily delivery of fresh leaf. Anwen recovered well from her burns injuries, and as the vegetation had grown back sufficiently following the bushfires, she was released back into the Lake Innes Nature Reserve.
