Buddy Turns One!

07 Nov 2018 16:47:50

Happy Birthday Buddy!

Six months’ after our koala joey, Buddy, captured the hearts of Australia in his public debut in July, the loveable furry friend celebrated his first birthday!

Buddy was welcomed into the world in November 2017 and popped out of his mother’s pouch earlier than expected to meet and greet his guests in July of this year. Son to Bryce and Kyara, and the sibling of Kikki who was born in the last breeding season, the koala joey serves as an ambassador to educate the public on the need to protect the Australian-native species which is currently listed as vulnerable in the wild.

To mark this milestone, our keepers here at Wild Life Sydney Zoo hosted an adorable 1st birthday celebration for Buddy with staff and guests on Friday 2nd November! Buddy even received a special gift from his loving keepers - a yummy eucalyptus bouquet for Buddy to enjoy all to himself!

Come down to WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo to meet our adorable one year old Koala joey Buddy and his little joey friend Scarlet!
