Animals like humans are attached and devoted to their babies the same way, regardless the species the unique connection between a mother and her little baby is always special. The love between the mother and her child is the strongest power on Earth. Thankfully, the staff at the Symbio Wildlife Park in Helensburgh, Australia managed to catch on camera the tender moment a newborn koala meets its mom for the very first time. Heart-warming moment shows the little the koala mom and her baby look in each other’s eyes.
According to the World Wide Fund, koala is Australia’s “most iconic animal species.” And “with their stout, tailless body, large head with round, fluffy ears and large, spoon-shaped nose, are instantly recognisable as a symbol of Australia,” the organization’s official site reads.
However, the things doesn’t look too good for these cute mammals. According to the Australian Koala Foundation, theirs number has dramatically decreased in the last years and now are less than 80,000 individuals left in the wild. That makes them a “functionally extinct” species.
