KANGAROO ORPHANAGE AT JOSEPHINE'S GALLERY IN COOBER PEDY.

http://anaustralianodyssey.wordpress.com

Our wonderful friends, Terry and Joe are always looking for volunteers to help look after their kangaroos. Their labor intensive job has them tied 24 hours a day to their orphanage and its endearing collection of kangaroos. But as they both admit, 'Sometimes, we simply need a little break on our own. We aren't getting any younger, yet the needs of these little ones remain consistent. And as beautiful as these little guys are, it's still a tiring and endless job, day and night, week in week out, which really takes it out of you.'

To run their orphanage, Terry and Joe rely predominantly upon money that they earn from their gallery. Therefore, your donations are also very much welcome -- even if it's just a few dollars, every little bit helps.

Mother kangaroos are either getting hit by cars, shot by hunters or killed by dogs, so up to 3 new arrivals are brought in every month. Each baby kangaroo requires around $50 per week to maintain until they are ready for release. These costs cover the special 'lactose free' milk mixtures and disposable dippers. The little kangaroos also use about 5 disposable dippers per day. Furthermore, this covers the water and electricity bills for the washing machine, which seems to be constantly running, washing soiled blankets and bedding. Quite a costly exercise for an arid region like Coober Pedy. Petrol expenses and the occasional vets bill are not included.

So for those of you who were touched by these adorable and playful youngsters and are interested in lending a hand, or donating some money, contact Terry and Joe on: +61 8 86725931 josephine@josephinesgallery.com.au
