Australian Army soldiers spent their holiday caring for koalas with special needs

When fires raged in Australia, the military helped put them out.

On the orders of Prime Minister Scott Morrison, 3,000 soldiers were called in to help evacuate people and put out fires in Eastern Australia.

The soldiers had to do their hard work for several weeks, and some of them voluntarily gave up their scheduled leave.

They understood how important their help is to both people and animals.

The photos, which went viral on the web, show soldiers of the 16th Emergency Support Regiment holding koalas in their arms.

All of these soldiers waived their required leave and stayed at the Cleland Wildlife Sanctuary to care for the animals.

They helped veterinarians care for and feed the koalas and built an aviary for them to climb.

“I think koalas are just amazing and interesting animals. They have bags in which they carry their little ones until they grow up and learn to move around on their own. I invite everyone to visit Australia and see these wonderful animals with their own eyes,” said Captain Garnett Hall.

This is a great act of kindness by these selfless people.

We appreciate their willingness to take care of these incredible animals. Bravo, you’ve done a great job.
