Elmo is the second joey of Koala Gardens favourite Ellie and a younger sibling to Eddie. Elmo is a strong, healthy joey and watching him emerge from the pouch and grow up has been a joy for us all. He is already a high climber, just like his mum.

We hope that Elmo will live a long and healthy life. Maybe he will even stay around, but it is likely that he will disperse later in his life as this is critical for genetic diversity within the koala population.

Elmo has his own playlist on YouTube (below).
