We first saw Pearl, a beautiful female with a round face and dark fur, at Koala Gardens in 2022. It was not long before her gorgeous joey Hope emerged from her pouch for the first time. Watching them together was a total joy.
In early 2023 Pearl separated from Hope who happily got on with his life at Koala Gardens without her. Whilst we do not see Pearl on the property so often now; she is on a neighbouring property which is under koala habitat regeneration. This is a real victory for Koala Gardens. Katrina works voluntarily with other Landowners, educating and encouraging them. This new neighbour is now working with the same professional regeneration team to create a sanctuary directly adjoining Koala Gardens. Seeing Pearl there already is proof that this is the best strategy.
Pearl is a fine mother and has recently shown us that she has a 2023 joey in pouch. Exciting time ahead.
Pearl has lots of video (with and without her joey) on YouTube and even has her very own playlist (below). She appears in the Koala Gardens Happenings for 2022.
