Australian farmer rescues koalas, dying of thirst

Koalas, one of the symbols of Australian wildlife, usually receive all the necessary moisture from the eucalyptus leaves that these animals eat. However, because of drought and forest fires, moisture reserves in the leaves of eucalyptus are small, and eucalyptus trees themselves become smaller. All this makes the koala feel thirsty and go in search of water.

Robert Friend, an ordinary farmer from New South Wales, decided to help marsupials. The farmer came up with and created a station that he installed right on the trees. Now the main thing is to monitor the presence of water in them, and the animals quickly become accustomed to the benefits of civilization.
