Thousands of koalas are feared to have perished in the devastating bushfires still raging across New South Wales, Australia, leaving their populations at tipping point. Search and rescue teams are trying to locate survivors—but this is a major challenge. Camouflaged high in the tree tops, koalas are difficult for the human eye to spot. This is where the skills of our koala detection dog Bear come in.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Bear is part of a team at the Detection Dogs for Conservation Centre at @usc.australia and is trained to detect live koalas through the scent of their fur. Like all of the dogs at the center, Bear's boundless energy and inquisitive nature make him the perfect detection dog.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Bear and his expert handler Rianna recently deployed to southeast Queensland and one of the hardest hit areas of New South Wales where the bushfires decimated local koala populations. Although they did not locate koala survivors, Bear indicated possible live koalas at a number of spots and we're hopeful more will be found in the coming days. Bear and Rianna are on standby to deploy to additional areas as needed.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ We continue to provide aid to our local partners Friends of the Koala as they rescue and care for injured wildlife—but Australia’s animals need more heroes to save them from this ongoing disaster.

👉 But esto no le a impedido nada, Fondo Internacional para el Bienestar Animal vio algo especial en él y lo adoptaron… 😄

Oso ayuda a bomberos del IFAW a localizar koalas y animales enfermos o lesionados por los incendios, ¡Super! 🙌 el los carga o bien, ladra para llamar la atención del equipo que lo acompaña.

Con todos los incendios que se han registrado en Australia Osito a sido de gran ayuda y ha salvado a miles, claro que su vestimenta es especial y es vigilado para no resultar herido.

¡Sin duda es todo un héroe! ✨👏
