Australian Teens Save as Many Koalas as They Can: Driving Around, Filling Car Full of Koalas

As the fires rage on in Australia two teenage boys, cousins 19-year-old Micah and 18-year-old Caleb, have jumped into heroic action.


Yesterday we asked the LightWorker community to join us in continuing to pray for Australia as the bushfires fail to relent. The fires have raged since September, in which it has been revealed that nearly a billion animals have died as the fires ravage acre after acre.

“Especially hard-hit was the koala population, with many of these animals dying in the calamity,” Bored Panda reports.

A fact that moved two teenage boys, cousins 19-year-old Micah and 18-year-old Caleb, to heroic action.

The two young men drove around Kangaroo Island, tirelessly searching for and rescuing endangered koalas that had managed to survive the bushfires.

The Sun shares, “that around 60 percent of the koalas [Micah and Caleb] came across had burned to death.” With “one-fifth of the koalas they saved [dying] within the first day due to their injuries.”

The boys’ rescue efforts were documented in a short video shared originally to Reddit by their cousin. The short video, which can be seen above, shows a car filled with rescued koalas—including a mother and baby koala.
