The koala at the San Diego Zoo spend their time eating and sleeping, have great accomodations and get great affectionate care from the staff. But some of their cousins in Australia were hurt by the recent wildfires.  Those guys will be needing some help.  (Photo taken March 7, 2009 at the San Diego Zoo.)

It takes a special koala and keeper to get this close to visitors. Kobi, a 2 year old male, is being trained by keeper Jennifer Mull to feel secure and protected while walking near people. We got this opportunity to help with the training, no touching allowed, on February 16, 2008 during a special behinds the scenes early visit to the zoo.
