    Fire at Jirralinga

    For those of you that had a look at my photo called Texas the Koala, I have a sad update on it. Yesterday, there was a fire at Jirralinga and 6 koalas were killed. Very sadly, little Tex was one of them.'
    For those of you who don't know, Jirralinga is an animal rescue sanctuary just out of Geelong that has been looking after distressed animals for many years.
    Very hard to hear this, as this was the first koala I had ever patted.
    D610 and D90 with a 16-35mm f/4,a 70-200mm f/4 ,a 300mm f/4 +TC11 convertor, 18-200mmDX and 85mm micro Dx.

    Sally...CC always appreciated

    Sorry to hear that.
    All my photos are taken with recycled pixels.
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom, is knowing not to serve it in a fruit salad.

    That is terrible news Sally as we need all the koalas to build up their numbers again.

    Thanks, Benny and John..There were 4 adults and 2 babies but they did save some of the others. Just really sad when I was only there a few weeks ago and they do such a great job there rescuing wild animals. Texas was one of the babies
