These Aussie Soldiers Are Nursing And Cuddling Injured Baby Koalas During Their Time Off

Koalas are the spirit animal of Australia (okay, along with kangaroos). And many of these adorable creatures have been injured, killed, or displaced due to the bushfires still burning across Australia. But the 9th Brigade of the Australian Army is doing its best to help. In what seems like honestly the best use of their time, the soldiers are using their rest periods to snuggle and bottle-feed injured koalas.

In Facebook photos posted a few weeks ago, the 16 Regiment Emergency Support Force bottle-feeds koalas at the Cleland Wildlife Park in the Adelaide Hills. Since the photos were posted, over 45,000 people have shared the sweet images. Look at these cute bundles! The little tufted ears poking out!

Along with caring for koalas, the soldiers have also been aiding in clearing away debris from the fire, hosting community benefits, helping folks tidy their homes and properties, and offering support to affected Australians.

Recent rainfall across New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory has helped put out more than 30 of the region’s active fires. The continuing rains could put out the rest of the fires by the weekend.
