One of our most recent arrivals at Araucaria Sanctuary…. This little Red-necked wallaby pinky came into care a few days ago after her mum was hit by a car and sadly had to be euthanised due to her leg injuries. Little Cascade was still in the pouch but was covered in poo because her mum was too unwell to look after her. When we scooped her out we gave her a rinse under a cascade of warm water before toweling her dry and transferring her to a warm pouch… hence her name.
Cascade is drinking strongly and seems to be doing well so we hope she will thrive in care with us and grow up to be a strong healthy joey.
